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.

The CCAMLR IUU listed vessel Yangzi Hua 44 has changed name to Wutaishan Anhui 440

Posted on May 9th, 2012 in News on IUU fishing vessels, Uncategorized

Unconfirmed information suggests that the Yangzi Hua 44, IUU listed by CCAMLR, has changed name to Wutaishan Anhui 44.

The Wutaishan Anhui 44 was last seen at 0528 GMT on Tuesday 24 April 2012 at position 07°50’south, 102°59’east, heading 052° at 11 knots. That indicates that the vessel was on her way to Singapore or some other port in the area. The vessel seems to be flagged to Tanzania with Zanzibar as home port. The new call sign is 5IM488. The call sign and home port can be seen in the pictures below. The vessel is, as is common for IUU vessels, attempting to hide name and home port under a fishing net.
