Through January-February 2017, this vessel was identified on AIS, alongside 5 other vessels, transiting through the Indian Ocean on course to Djibouti and Puntland with the name CHAINAVEE 55. Throughout this voyage, all 6 vessels shifted between displaying Thailand and Djibouti details on AIS. In this period, the vessel was flagged to Djibouti. All 6 vessels, including SUPPHERMNAVEE 21 were observed on AIS trawl fishing within the Somalia EEZ between March and May 2017. Trawl fishing was prohibited by Somali law and Puntland at the time. The other fishing vessels included the then called CHAICHANACHOKE 8, CHAINAVEE 55 and the SUPPHERMNAVEE 21. In their operations, the vessels were supported by the fish carrier vessel WISDOM SEA REEFER. After subsequent alerts and analysis support through the FISH-i Africa network, the state of Somalia deemed the operations of the vessels as IUU fishing. Trawl fishing was prohibited by Somali law and Puntland at the time. During the meeting of the IOTC Compliance Committee in 2018, the CHAINAVEE 55, along with the CHAICHANACHOKE 8, CHAINAVEE 54, SUPPHERMNAVEE 21 and the WISDOM SEA REEFER, were included in the IOTC IUU list. According to several sources, the vessel then changed flag to Somalia and was renamed AL WESAM 2. The vessel was reflagged to Cameroon and re-named SEA VIEW in 2019. More information available upon request. Vessel confirmed berthed in Chittagong, Bangladesh, 18 March 2020.
