 Cap Saint Georges  (Fishing Vessel)

Trawlers seized off Faroes
Faroese authorities boarded four French trawlers, the "Haltenbank Pairtrawl", the "Cap Saint Georges", 898 gt (IMO: 9293014), the "Andre Leduc" and the "Bressay-Bank Pair Tr" in a closed area east of the island of Fugløy. Both of the two pair teams have been escorted to Kollafjørður. The Coastguard vessel "Tjaldrið" encountered the two pair teams fishing east of the Faroe Islands on June 19, 2016, and informed the police that the four trawlers were being escorted in having been apprehended in an area that had been closed to fishing a few days earlier due to the volumes of small fish in the region. The four trawlers docked in Kollafjørður in the night. The skippers of two of the French trawlers, owned by the Boulogne company Euronor, claim that they had not been informed of the closure and have declined to accept set penalties, so the case will go to court. The company’s legal representatives in the Faroes have already secured the necessary bond. The Faroese authorities had informed their French counterparts of the area closure, but the information did not reach the four trawlers until they had already been boarded. The two pair teams had only just begun fishing and have only a small amount of fish on board. Icelandic report with photos: www.jn.fo/fronsku...

Medevac off Réunion
An injured sailor, aged 28, was medevaced from the "Tomi Maru No. 58" off Réunion on June 21, 2016. The Indonesian man was hoisted by a Panther-helicopter of the surveillance frigate "Nivose" of the French Navy. The accident had occurred on June 17 at midnight. The sailor was seriously wounded in the left arm while the vessel was fishing. First aid was provided on board by the ship's crew to stabilize the victim. Given the serious injuries to his left arm, the Japanese authorities requested to organize an evacuation quickly. Given the remoteness of the fishing vessel, a medical examination was carried out regularly by the medical consultation center in Toulouse. The helicopter took off from the air detachment 181 in the morning of June 21 around 3:00 to transfer a doctor and a nurse on board the ship. After placing the wounded on a stretcher, the helicopter airlifted him and the medical team at 7:20 a.m. The man was delivered to the Félix Guyon Hospital in Saint-Denis about 08:00 a.m.
