Close Encounter

This fisher switched on his AIS when he was just 2 nautical miles in front of my bow. My procimity alarm went off. Guess what, the callsign on his class B AIS was “@@@@@@0”. The name of the vessel was “Shun663-3-70%” He then went off further southwest to meet all his friends. You see them on my screenshot of their AIS signals close to me, in several rows catching all the fish they can possibly get. The whole Pacific is full with thousands of these fishers, accumulated in large clusters. Check yourself on Marinetraffic. I wish there was a way to stop this industrial fishing!
