Russian shipbuilder Severnaya Verf held a keel-laying ceremony for a new longliner/processing vessel at the International Fishery Forum held last week in St. Petersburg.
The vessel has been named Marlin, and it will be delivered to Globus, an association of fishing collective farms in the Arkhangelsk region.
Designed by Marin Teknikk of Norway, Marlin will have a displacement of 2,200 tonnes, a length of 59 metres, and a width of 13 metres. It will have a maximum endurance of 45 days and an expected productivity capacity of 30 tonnes of fish per day.
The vessel will also incorporate environment-friendly features that comply with strict international requirements for environmental protection, the ability to process products of different assortment and degree of availability (including cod liver in glass and tin containers), extensive automation, and the ability to fish in virtually any weather.
Globus CEO Andrey Zaika said that Marlin will be initially deployed in the Barents and Norwegian Seas which are abundant in cod, haddock, catfish, halibut, perch, flounder, and ruff.
