  • Description

    A giant new factory ship -- floating base for an entire fleet of fishing vessels -- is currently nearing completion in Leningrad.

    The new ship, the Posyet, is on the same scale as the 43,000 ton Vostok, which was claimed to be the largest factory ship afloat when launched two years ago.

    Once she has completed sea trials this summer, the Posyet will be able to service 30 trawlers, processing over 750 tons of fish daily to produce fishmeal for farming.
