Pingtan Marine Enterprise’s rebuilt refrigerated transport vessel, Fu Yuan Yu Yun 992 is heading for international waters, along with six large squid jigging vessels.
The refit of 132 metre, 8374gt reefer Fu Yuan Yu Yun 992 was completed in October 2020, making it the largest fishery support vessel in China so far as approved by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs of the People’s Republic of China.
Fu Yuan Yu Yun 992 left Shidao Port in Weihai City, Shandong Province on 12th December 12 and it will operate in the international waters.
The six large squid jiggers are vessels that returned to China earlier in 2020 from the south-west Atlantic for maintenance and repair. These vessels left the port of Mawei on 17th December, heading for fishing grounds in the international waters of the south-east Pacific.
