Cape Arkona

66,9m long liner/trawler/potter


The vessel can alternate between long lining, trawling and fishing with traps - a combination that has not been implemented before, as far as we know. Austral Fisheries is one of Australia's largest integrated commercial fishing companies with interests in both deep sea fishing and at sea prawning. The ship has been designed with focus on minimal environmental impact. The vessel can alternate between all three types of fishing on one single trip without having to reconfigure.
