Poacher Ray in Luanda for 12 days0
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.
