Spanish Navy’s ‘Tarifa’ Sails to Cantabrian Sea and Gran Sol

The Spanish Navy’s patrol vessel ‘Tarifa’ yesterday started a journey from Cartagena towards the waters of the Cantabrian Sea and Gran Sol to participate in two fisheries inspection campaigns lasting for 40 days.


First, it will take part in the “Pelagic” campaign, framed within the JDP EFCA (European Fisheries Control Agency) during which it will monitor, control and conduct inspection of regulated fishery pelagic species (herring, mackerel, horse mackerel, anchovy and blue whiting) in the Bay of Biscay. Portuguese, French and Spanish fishing inspectors will be included in this phase.

Then the vessel will engage in the “Quadripartite” campaign in which the patrol member states (Ireland, UK, France and Spain) conduct programs of control, inspection and surveillance in these waters, extending from the Bay of Biscay to the south west of Ireland (Gran Sol). During this second phase, the vessel will have the support of an Irish, English and two Spanish fisheries inspector.

The vessel is scheduled to make stops in the port of Cork, Ireland.
