Illegal Fishing: Bodies Found in Freezer

BY Wendy Laursen 2014-12-30 21:49:55

Australia’s ABC News reports that the bodies of three people have been found in the freezer of an illegal fishing boat in a remote part of Papua New Guinea.

The deceased appear to be Asian, and their bodies were packed in amongst a catch of tuna.

Local authorities from Bougainville are on their way to investigate the boat which ran aground on Paona Island. The bodies were discovered on December 10, but the incident has only recently been reported due to the remoteness of the location.

Bougainville disaster co-ordinator Frank Lacey is heading the investigation team, and he said the remaining crew members tried unsuccessfully to destroy the boat before fleeing to a mothership.

Illegal tuna fishing is common in the area, and one source told the ABC the call sign of the vessel had been tracked to a Chinese owner. However, the vessel was declared lost at sea in June 2014.

Dude, what’s your problem. The skipper probably cut his teeth in the PNW, and I’m most sure that none are from down the evil, evil bayou. Can’t even blame JOE BOSS for that. Sucks, don’t it?

The Boating Safety Code
Know before you go: 5 simple rules to help you stay safe

Before you go boating on our seas, lakes and rivers, get familiar with New Zealand’s Boating Safety Code, no matter what kind of boat you use.

  1. LIFEJACKETS
    Take them - Wear them. Boats, especially ones under 6m in length, can sink very quickly. Wearing a life jacket increases your survival time in the water.

  2. SKIPPER RESPONSIBILITY
    The skipper is responsible for the safety of everyone on board and for the safe operation of the boat. Stay within the limits of your vessel and your experience.

  3. COMMUNICATIONS
    Take two separate waterproof ways of communicating so we can help you if you get into difficulties.

  4. MARINE WEATHER
    New Zealand’s weather can be highly unpredicatable. Check the local marine weather forecast before you go and expect both weather and sea state changes.

  5. AVOID ALCOHOL
    Safe boating and alcohol do not mix. Things can change quickly on the water. You need to stay alert and aware.

That’s the guy Joe Boss wants to be and would be if all those pesky laws didn’t get in his way. Joe is optimistic though, he knows that if he keeps funneling cash to the right folks he can run boats like that too.

Yeah. Sad part is, that’s more correct than we even want to believe. Not only is Joe optimistic, but he is persistent and has lots of friends willing to be his cheerleaders, for fame, fun or profit…

Check out all the countries that wouldnt sign up to mlc2006 for some reason, only 3rd world fleets…

Just another day in Paradise. The crew fled to a mother ship. What sort of mother lets her brood go around looking like that?
I wonder if they still used the rdf loops for position fixing - could be why they ended up on a reef.

hi friends you can watch this,whenever you go in Sea.

An excellent hybrid of sci fi and horror. The underwater thriller approaches things bit different with some unique plot twists and the use of great visuals. As a horror film, the best way to describe this one is simply spooky. Sphere goes beyond an “Alien” style premise and really engages the viewer into an intellectual experience. It has survived so long as a choice due its ability to engage without spelling everything out for you.
