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 TMT has also taken over the ownership and management of the combined IUU vessel website, TMT is maintaining the webpages of Trygg Mat Foundation for public interest. All contact links from this website will be directed to TMT.

Poacher Ray in Luanda for 12 days0

Posted on May 4th, 2012 in News on IUU fishing vessels, Uncategorized



The toothfish poacher RAY, ex Kily, Constant and Tropic is in Luanda and has been there for the past 12 days. In March, the TM Foundation noted that the IUU listed vessel “Kily” had changed name, flag and owner. The vessel transmitted the name “Ray” and flag “Belize” from its AIS in Singapore harbour.

The vessel is IUU listed by CCAMLR, therefore also IUU listed by SEAFO. Since Angola is a member of SEAFO, the country is obliged to take action.

To see the vessel’s history of name, flag and owner changes see the vessel sheet in the TM combined IUU vessel list.
