MURMANSK, January 21. /ITAR-TASS/. The Senegalese authorities have released Russia’s trawler, the Oleg Naidenov, seized in Senegalese waters in early January on bail, executive director of Fenix, a company owning the trawler, Yuri Parshev, told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
“We received this information from a representative of the Russian federal fisheries agency, Rosrybolovstvo, in Senegal, who interacts with that country’s authorities on the trawler’s release,” he said.
The Russian Association of Companies Fishing off West Africa, of which Fenix is a member, has paid the necessary bail amount. The trawler’s owner did not name the bail’s size, but noted that “the sum was proposed by the Russian side and fitted the Senegalese authorities as sufficient to cover possible penal sanctions,” Parshev said.
Earlier Rosrybolovstvo said the bail was equal to $1 million.
The Oleg Naidenov suspected of illegal fishing within Senegalese waters was seized by the Senegalese military 46 miles of Guinea-Bissau on January 4 with 82 crew onboard, including 62 Russians and 20 citizens of Guinea-Bissau, and convoyed to the port of Dakar on January 5.
The Oleg Naidenov is owned by private company Fenix, registered in Murmansk, the extreme northwest part of Russia. It is a big fishing boat of Moonzund type, 120 meters long, built in Germany in 1989.
