SEA HARVEST INVESTS IN A NEW TRAWLER
Sea Harvest has launched its new stern trawler, Harvest Atlantic Peace, recently acquired from Norway where it has been fishing Greenland Halibut. Built in 1987 at the Sterkoder AS yard, the trawler has on-board factory and is capable of catching and processing 6500-7000 green-weight tons of Cape Hake per year. She will be able to freeze 40 tons of Cape Hake per day with a crew of 60 and will be at sea for between 30 and 40 days. Sea Harvest’s investment totals R125 million which includes some modifications to the vessel.
