The CCAMLR and IUU listed fishing vessel Ray was denied a fishing license in Angola in May this year and asked to leave Luanda immediately. She left port June 8th. Since then she has operated in international waters just off the Angolan 200 mile zone. Ray was registered to Belize when she arrived in Luanda in April, but she is now listed in IHSF with flag “unknown”.
The fishing vessel Pion (IMO 8713392) on the CCAMLR IUU vessel list has changed name to Octopus-1 and flag Mongolia. AIS signals indicate that the flag change happened between the 13th and 14th of June at S 47°59.41′E 008°37.65′ just north of the Bouvet Island. The vessel has now had at least 9 names and 8 flags since CCAMLR put her on the IUU vessel list in 2004.
The AIS signals are consistent with fishing and the vessel is in the SEAFO regulatory area.
