The Opportunity

The shellfish fisheries have a new vessel in service, operating in the central Atlantic fishing grounds off the coasts of Mauritania and Guinea Bissau. Its work is governed by the

European Union’s fishing partnership agreements with non-EU countries. 

Built by the Armón shipyard in Navia for the Huelva shipowner Baltimar, special care was taken to ensure the refrigeration systems were suitable for use in tropical climes and to fit fishing systems that are respectful of marine ecosystems.

The fishery to be conducted by the “Doce de Julio“ vessel falls within the framework of the Sustainable Fisheries Partnership Agreements (SFPA) negotiated and signed by the European Union with third countries, in particular with the two African countries mentioned above.

The Solution

The “Doce de Julio” freezer trawler is equipped with state-of-the-art maritime and fishing technologies, its main engine and auxiliary units are of the latest generation, consuming around 200 litres of diesel oil less per day compared to the old engines, which reduces CO2 emissions.

  • Year of construction: 2023
