The Skipper has has been informed this morning that the Dutch Factory Trawler Willem van der Zwan is currently under tow by another trawler Alida off the south west coast after suffering engine failure while fishing Blue Whiting at the Porcupine.

Apparently they choose not to make for the nearest Irish port as they claim we do not have the facilities to discharge their catch.

It sound that it is more a case of not having their catch examined than a question of availing of the nearest safe harbour
