Sweden’s Gifico to expand trawler fleet


Swedish fishing company Gifico has awarded Denmark’s Karstensens a contract for the construction of a new pelagic trawler.

The 63.8- by 13.5-metre Ginneton will replace an earlier, similarly named trawler that was built by Karstensens for Gifico in 2006.

The new Ginneton will be delivered in August 2023.
