New Sealord fishing vessel Totaku soon to head for Nelson

Sealord’s brand new $70m fishing vessel has been given a name as it nears completion in Norway. The Nelson-based fishing company has named its new 82.9m factory trawler Tokatu. Translated from Māori, Toka means rock and Tu means stand, and relates to the phrase “he tokatu moana” – a rock that withstands the ravages of the sea. It is said of a person who can withstand the test of time. A delivery crew is due to travel to Norway soon in preparation for her maiden voyage down to NZ. Tokatu will then embark on a 40-day voyage to NZ, by way of the Panama Canal.>click to read<13:31
