Modern fishing vessel at work

If you have the time you are invited onboard the combined Seiner/Pelagic trawler M/V Teigenes.

First for a trip to the fishing grounds in the North Atlantic, off Ireland, catching Blue Witing by Pelagic Trawl:

Then for a trip in the North Sea to catch herring by Seine Net::

PS> Turn off the sound, the music is just annoying.


Modern coastal seiner at work:

Heading home to deliver catch:

This one slips in under the 15 m. LOA limit.

Fishing boat no more, but still at work:

With a wee dram on the poop deck while watching the magical sunset.

A brand new long liner, the Antarctic Aurora has just been delivered from Vard Vung Tau. She spent 5 days in Singapore and is now on her way to her home port of Hobart, Tasmania, before starting her first tip to the Southern Ocean to catch Patagonian Toothfish:

She is Australian registered, designed by Skipsteknisk AS, Norway (ST-156L). Built in Vietnam, but packed with Norwegian equipment and technology…

PS> She may not be universally welcomed in her home port:

The 42 year old Seiner/Pelagic Trawler Siglar is in town preparing for her trip to her new home in Angola:

Her new name is Yahweh (GOD??)

Looks like Kaarstensen Shipyard in Skagen, Denmark has captured the market for modern Pelagic Trawler/Seiners:

Kongsberg’s Simrad division has long been the market leader in fish finding sonar equipment and other electronics for the fishing fleet worldwide.

Brand new Factory Trawler has arrived from the building yard in Turkey:

Stig Remøy’s new trawlers arrived last night at Mjølstadneset in Fosnavåg.

Olympic Prawn is 70 meters and has Rolls-Royce / Kongsberg design, machinery and deck equipment. “Olympic Prawn” is built to operate in Arctic waters and has fishing rights and processing capacity for whitefish and shrimp.

The boat was built at the Cemre shipyard in Turkey, and has a lot of equipment from Norwegian suppliers.
