One of South Africa’s largest fishing companies, Irvin & Johnson in Cape Town, currently invests in the replacement of an ageing trawler fleet.

Their latest purchase of the approximately 45-meter trawler CTT Ferox, brings the total number of trawlers in the company up to twelve.

Here is a quote from skipper Roberto from CTT Ferox, which was delivered by a spanish shipyard in August this year, after the first few trips: »its really appreciated, this is my third trip now and the last 2 were very good trips as we actually out fished the other F-Class vessels where as they were getting much smaller fish than us.«

So the expectations were fully met with the choice of 7.5 m² Type 14 VF semi-pelagic Thyboron trawldoors.
