Eidsvaag Sirius – Fish Food Carrier.

Eidsvaag Sirius – Fish Food Carrier.

Back in 2011 a fishfood carrier put into pier 25. The Eidsvaag Vinland was operated for the Norwigian Fish farming company Skretting, between Newfoundland, St Andrews NB, and Nova Scotia. Though the ship was registered with the home port of Halifax, to my knowledge it never returned. Eidsvaag Vinland’s Canadian registration closed in march, and she is now trading under the Norwegian flag.

Now her replacement has also arrived. the Eidsvaag Sirius arrived on June 12, and will likely be Canadianized and re-flagged.

About Halifax Shipping News

Halifax Shipping News began in 2008 as a blog called The Armchair Captain. The idea behind it came when I would become curious about the comings and goings in the harbour, and research to find their source. I figured if I was wondering, others would be as well, and so I would blog about them. 5+ years later, here we are. This blog is written by Peter Ziobrowski. Peter is a Senior IT System Architect, and holds a BA in the History & Theory of Architecture,as well as diplomas in Computer System Technology and Information System Security. His personal site can be found at http://www.ziobrowski.net. Peter is available for media interviews on local Maritime issues. He also holds a large collection of photos of shipping subjects from Halifax suitable for publication. You can contact him directly via email at peter@halifaxshippingnews.ca.
