Southern Ocean Longliner Follows Successful Formula

A new Saint Helena-registered longliner is heading south to take part in the fishery for Patagonian toothfish in the Southern Ocean. Built for Spanish owners, F/V Polar Bay is the latest in a long series of longliners designed by Marin Teknikk and built at Tersan, and this has been shown to be a successful formula. Accommodation on board is completed to a high standard for a crew of up to 30, and F/V Polar Bay is designed to spend extended periods at sea when required as the fishery covers a variety of fishing grounds in the Southern Ocean. photos, video, >click to read< 17:48
