Interest always follows the 'tallest' or 'heaviest' or 'smartest' of anything - and that is certainly true when it come to the second largest fishing vessel in the world, the Margiris - which right at this moment is heading for Newlyn.

According to the MMO the Margiris,  states that, "All EU member state vessels have equal access to EU waters, but must observe access limits and hold the relevant quota."

In recent times the vessel has fished as far away as Australia in an attempt to meet her running costs.
