Tarifa Returns from NAFO

September 2, 2019 (Google Translation) – The tall patrolman “Tarifa” returned to port yesterday, after two months deployed in North Atlantic waters as a vessel assigned in the international fisheries inspection scheme of the North Atlantic Fisheries Organization (NAFO), since last June 28.

During its deployment it has made three logistic scales, as well as for rest of the endowment. Two of them in the port of St. John (Canada), and a third stop in transit back to Spain in the port of Punta Delgada in the Azores Islands.

In its mission it has embarked two teams of NEAF inspectors, who have carried out inspections of high-altitude fishermen who fish in the NAFO agreement area.

In addition, it has made health support to ships in the area, assisting a member of the crew of a Portuguese fishing boat that had a fracture in one of the phalanges.

The vessel plans to rejoin the fisheries inspection scheme starting next October in national waters in support of the General Secretariat of Fisheries (SEGEPESCA).
