MURMANSK, January 23. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s trawler “Oleg Naydenov” will return to the fishing point approximately at 10 p.m. Moscow time, the ship owner’s executive director, Yuri Parshev, told Itar-Tass.
The Senegalese authorities have not filed official charges against the Russian trawler for violating fishing rules, Parshev said.
Parshev told Itar-Tass on Wednesday, January 22, that Russia’s trawler “Oleg Naydenov” is free and will leave Dakar and continue fishing after a pilot arrives to help move the vessel to the sea.
Earlier, a spokesman to the ship owner said the Senegalese authorities had taken a decision to free the trawler on bail and made the decision public on Tuesday, January 21.
Representatives of the Russian Federal Fisheries Agency named the sum of one million dollars.
After the trawler leaves the port of Dakar it will go to the waters of Guinea-Bissau for fishing.
The situation on the trawler is working, Parshev said.
The trawler Oleg Naydenov was detained off Guinea Bissau on January 4 for suspected illegal fishing, Lieutenant-Colonel Adama Diop, from the public relations office at the Senegalese Army, said last week.
There were 82 persons aboard the ship - 62 Russians and 20 citizens of Guinea Bissau. The trawler was procuring fish off that African country under an inter-governmental agreement, which requires Russian sailors to take locals aboard for training and work.
The trawler belongs to the closed joint stock company Feniks registered in Murmansk, northern Russia.
Parshev noted that the Senegalese authorities had repeatedly accused Russian ships of breaching fishing rules and imposed fines upon them, including the Oleg Naydenov.
Its owner, senior officials of the Federal Fisheries Agency, the Russian Foreign Ministry, Defense Ministry, Emergencies Ministry and other relevant organisations have been notified about the incident.
The Oleg Naydenov is a large factory trawler, 120 metres long. It was built in Germany in 1989 and received its current name in 2005 in honor of Murmansk’s first mayor.
