With Blue Fin Tuna (BFT) Season in place it was interesting to see 2 Tunisian purse seiners at Grand Harbour, Malta during June 2013 sheltering from strong winds, both of them during their maiden calls.

These were the 1996 built wooden 24 metre wooden hull purse seiner ABOU SHAMA homeported in Monastir with fishing matricola as MO 610 built as the JANNET with 94 GRT. Her berth was at Coal Wharf.

Then the 2011 built 37 metre  purse seiner DENPHIR I , also homeported at Monastir with fishing matricola as MO 905 followed berthing at Bridge Wharf.
