Large fleet of Japanese fishing vessels - at Rockall!

 


There's a fleet of ten large Japanese fishing vessels working west and south west of Rockall...


they have been searching as far north as the east coast of Iceland...


in their hunt for tuna...


most have come through the Panama Canal after steaming across the Pacific and then the Atlantic Oceans to fish here...



others have been fishing off the west coast of Africa and Rockall since January of last year...


south-west of them again is a solitary Korean tuna boat...



which hasn't seen a Korean shore for over two years.
