Contact us about this vessel


This vessel was originally named FREEPORT CHIEF under an unknown flag and owner. This vessel was sold to numerous Greek owners (Spartan Shipping, Nestor Maritime Ltd and Sea Anchor Shipping Co. Ltd) while maintaining a Liberia flag between 1991-2007. This vessel was owned by companies based in the Virgin Islands between September 2008 to August 2009 until eventual Russian ownership under Kredo Investment Co LLC. The vessel held Russia flag for an unknown period and was renamed LAFAYETTE while owned by Kredo Investment Co LLC. Vessel ownership transferred to Peru based Sustainable Fishing Resources SAC alongside Peru flag transfer and name change to DAMANZAIHAO in July 2014. SPRFMO included this vessel in their 2015 IUU list for prolonged presence in the SPRFMO Area without authorisation and providing support to five authorised Peruvian trawlers according to evidence provided by Chile and Peru. SPRFMO fishing licenses were revoked for the vessel shortly after listing. Sources suggest this vessel held either Peru, Belize, or Russia flag at the time of IUU listing. After a dark period, this vessel was detained by Peru in May 2018 for operating illegally in the Peruvian EEZ and later released. DVS-R Pte Ltd, a Singapore based company with ties to Russian Dmitrii Dremliuga and Dalmoreproduct purchased this vessel from Sustainable Fishing Resources SAC in April 2018. Evidence from Oceana suggests this vessel engaged in illegal transhipment with the vessel HAI SOON 26 in July 2018, refuelled without authorisation in Balboa port, Panama in July 2018 and docked in Dalian port, China in September 2018. This vessel renamed to VLADIVOSTOK 2000 in February 2019 and later gained authorisation to fish Mackerel and Sardines in the NPFC Convention area for the duration of 2019 and 2020. This vessel held Moldova, Russia, and Peru flags during fishing activities in the NPFC Area. SPRFMO delisted this vessel on 14 February 2020. However, this vessel was cross listed by SIOFA in 2019 and remains on the SIOFA IUU list.
