Contact us about this vessel


On the ICCAT IUU vessel list there is a No 2 Choyu and a No. 3 Choyu. There is no other information on the two vessels. The vessels were listed in 2006 after having been seen fishing in the Mediterranean in the closed season . An ICCAT list of vessels from 1999 establishes that that the Cho Yu No. 3 is owned by Armadora Pesquera Choyu S de RL This list also identifies the Pesquera No. 68 as a vessel suspected of IUU fishing for tuna and the owner to be Choyu Fishery. Based on the above there is a strong reason to assume that the JIIN HORNG NO. 106, formerly Choyu No. 2, IMO 8429991, on the IOTC licensed vessel list is the same as the No 2 Choyu on the ICCAT IUU vessel list. The vessel has been operating in the Indian Ocean under a Seychelles flag since 2012. In October 2014 it was reported that the vessel was involved in an incident at sea where an armed guard aboard the JIIN HORNG No.106 aimed a weapon at a regional patrol vessel, resulting in the at-sea inspection being suspended for safety reasons.
