Vessel Details - UTHAIWAN - Delisted

Contact us about this vessel


This vessel applied to enter Taiwan port on 12 July 2017 under the name WISDOM SEA REEFER and Honduras flag. Sources at the time suggested this vessel was involved in illegal transhipment with 4 Djibouti flagged fishing vessels and potentially 2 other vessels all fishing under an illegal Puntland State license in Somali waters. This vessel entered Taiwan waters but fled before physical inspection could take place at port. Hence an at sea inspection occurred, finding multiple irregularities with transhipment documents and recorded catch tonnage of transhipments. This vessel was included in the IOTC IUU list in May 2018 as a result. Honduras fined this vessel $50,000 due to its IOTC IUU listing. Vessel held Honduras, Bolivia, Moldova and an unknown flag under the names RENOWN REEFER, HONOR and UTHAIWAN from the time of IUU listing until September 2019. Thai authorities alongside international agencies arrested this vessel, now named UTHAIWAN, off the coast of Phuket on 25 October 2019. Vessel claimed registry to Cameroon and failed to notify Thai authorities before entering Thai waters. As of November 2019, it was reported in IOTC Circular 2019-48 that this vessel is still registered to Honduras, as a result of a prohibition of deletion from the Registry resulting from non-payment of a fine. Honduras also informed Thailand the vessel has no navigation permit to set sail. P.K Shipping and Agency., Ltd, the master of this vessel and the managing director of P.K. Shipping and Agency Co., Ltd paid a 1 million baht fine to Thai authorities in October 2019. IOTC delisted this vessel in March 2021. Sources suggest this vessel currently holds Mongolia registry.
