Taiwan To Send Training Vessel To Escort Tuna Fleet Against Pirates

One training vessel was dispatched by the Fishery Bureau of the Council of Agriculture last week on a cruise to escort Taiwan's fishing fleets in the Indian Ocean and the Atlantic.

The Yuxun No. 2, the training vessel cum escort, left Kaohsiung in the afternoon on a 165-day voyage, which covers 3,200 nautical miles.

Tuna boats from Taiwan are operating in the Indian Ocean and the Atlantic. They need protection from pirates. The training vessel will visit Louis, Mauritius, and Cape Town, South Africa, a COA spokesman said.
