Fodas Pescadores departs Duluth canal

Before this year, the Fodas Pescadores had never been to Duluth. Today, after discharging cargo in Hamilton, Ontario, it is here for the third time this season. Only one other saltwater ship, the Dutch flagged Vancouverborg, has made that many trips here this year. While flying the flag of Panama, the Fodas Pescadores is owned by a Taiwanese company. On previous visits, it had a Captain and Chief Engineer from Taiwan and a crew from mainland China.
