The squid fishing vessel Qna 91379, captained by Mr Tran Van Vien, commenced an offshore fishing trip from May 16 with 33 crew members at the An Hoa border guard station in Nui Thanh district, Quang Nam province.
At 6am on June 22, the fishing vessel Qna 90927 TS, owned by Tran Tan Sinh of Tam Giang commune, Nui Thanh district, approached the vessel Qna 91379. However, due to inclement weather and rough seas, the fishing vessel Qna 90927 could not tow the squid fishing boat to shore.
The relevant agencies have remained in contact and closely cooperated to bring the stricken vessel to the safety of the mainland. At present, all crew members of the crippled vessel are in stable health.
