The large Russian fishing vessel Zakhar Sorokin has spent a week trawling occupied waters.
The Russian trawler Zakhar Sorokin seems to have set out July 15th from the Mauritanian capital Nouakchott. She then quickly sailed towards the rich fishing banks off the Mauritanian second biggest city, Nouadhibou, on the border to occupied Western Sahara.
There it trawled until the end of July, when continuing into the occupied waters of Western Sahara.
The boat has remained in Western Sahara waters from some time between the 20th and 31st of July until today. Around 1st of August, it had travelled as far north as Dakhla.
The vessel is owned by the same Murmansk Trawl Fleet, as WSRW mentioned earlier this year.
Their vessels Aleksandr Mironenko and Kapitan Bogomolov did such fishing in January.
Zakhar Sorokin has IMO number 8607256 and call sign UDYG.Update 11 Aug 2008:
One week more has passed -the vessel is still there:
