Vessel Details - TARUMAN - Delisted

Contact us about this vessel


Vessel was owned by Malik Shipping AS from 1991 to 2000 whilst flagged to Denmark and Norway. Vessel also reflagged to Greenland in 1997 under the name POLAR PRINCESS II. A New Zealand Air Force surveillance patrol over the Ross Sea detected this vessel operating within the CCAMLR Area south of New Zealand and later in Australia’s EEZ around Macquarie Island. The information was passed to CCAMLR and the Australians, and the vessel was subsequently intercepted and arrested. Vessel was included in the CCAMLR IUU list on 4 November 2005 as a result. Vessel held 3 flags in 2005 (Greenland, Panama, and Cambodia) and 3 names (POLAR SAATTUAQ, SORA and TARUMAN). Vessel reflagged to North Korea whilst IUU listed in November 2008 and reportedly broken up a month later. Vessel was delisted on 23 October 2009.
