The offshore patrol vessel ‘Alborán’ begins its participation in the coastal tuna fishing campaign

Patrullero-de-Altura-AlboránThe Navy’s offshore patrol vessel ‘Alborán’ began its participation in the coastal campaign for northern bonito this past Wednesday. These actions take place in Atlantic Ocean waters during the spring and summer.

This fishery involves a large number of Spanish fishing vessels, which use traditional techniques (trolling and live bait), as well as those from other member states of the European Union (EU).

According to Navy sources, the vessel will patrol both the international waters of the North Atlantic and the waters of the Spanish exclusive economic zone and coastal waters, depending on various oceanographic factors, with the aim of carrying out control, inspection and support tasks for the fishing fleet involved in catching bonito tuna.

In addition, to carry out its mission, the ‘Alborán’ embarked an inspector from the General Secretariat for Fisheries.

Three frigate ensigns, students from the Naval Military School, are currently on board the vessel for their training period.

Other main missions of the vessel, in addition to inspection, surveillance and support for fishing activities, will include naval presence, control of maritime space, and search and rescue, among others.

Finally, the ‘Alborán’ will return to its home port in Cartagena on 8 July at the end of this fishing campaign.
