The Trygg Mat Foundation was a Norwegian foundation working on sustainable seafood production. The main focus of the organisation increasingly became illegal fishing and in 2014 it was decided that a new entity, Trygg Mat Tracking (TMT), should be initiated to take on this particular focus. The work of TMT can be found at www.tm-tracking.org. TMT has also taken over the ownership and management of the combined IUU vessel website, www.iuu-vessels.org. TMT is maintaining the webpages of Trygg Mat Foundation for public interest. All contact links from this website will be directed to TMT.

Toothfish poacher with funny new name0

Posted on March 6th, 2012 in News on IUU fishing vessels

The CCAMLR IUU listed vessel “Kily” has changed name, flag and owner. Last week, TM Foundation noted that the vessel transmitted the name “Ray” and flag “Belize” from its AIS in Singapore harbour. Now the vessel’s records have been updated in IHSF (Lloyd’s Register of Ships online).

The vessel’s new official name is RAY EX KILY and the flag is Belize. The vessel also has a new registered owner, Belfast Global SA in Panama. The company is was founded in 2012 and it is as likely to be a new shell for the old owners as an actual beneficial owner change.

The RAY EX KILY is still in Singapore, but has started to move around port. (below) To see the vessel’s history of name, flag and owner changes see the vessel sheet in the TM combined IUU vessel list.
