The South Korea-flagged vessel O Yang 77, captured by the Argentine Naval Prefecture (PNA) for alleged illegal fishing in Argentine waters, arrived Sunday at the Comodoro Rivadavia port, in the province of Chubut.

South Korean ship O Yang 77 was detected when fishing within the exclusive national economic zone.

The fishing vessel had been detained last Thursday by a PNA Coast Guard that was patrolling the Argentine Sea, after being discovered operating illegally within the exclusive economic zone (EEZ), off Comodoro Rivadavia.

The detention maneuver began when the Coastguard GC-24 Mantilla crew detected the vessel, through a modern technological system, when it was pulling its trawl nets within the Argentine EEZ.

Immediately, the coast guard crew established a communication by radio with the foreign vessel´s captain, to stop their march, according to international standards.

The O Yang 77 captain complied with the stop order and not lift the fishing net he had deployed in the sea, while Prefecture crew, accompanied by an inspector of the National Directorate of Fisheries, sailed to the ship and boarded it.

The offending vessel arrived at the Comodoro Rivadavia port guarded by the PNA. After the Prefecture prepares the preliminary proceedings, the national Undersecretariat of Fisheries and Aquaculture will continue the procedures and will determine the fine the fishing vessel will have to pay and the cargo destination.

Fishing vessel O Yang 77 moored in the port of Comodoro Rivadavia, Chubut.

According to several Argentine media, the Federal Justice of Comodoro Rivadavia is also investigating the possible existence of crimes far more serious than illegal fishing, such as slave labor, sexual abuse and various mistreatment and overcrowding among the 45 crew members of the South Korean fishing vessel.

It was revealed that the crew lived in absolutely precarious conditions, violating the minimum human conditions and the agreements that Argentina has subscribed in the framework of the International Labor Organization (ILO).
