Another Research Ship

This evening the Cefas Endeavour entered Falmouth harbour. She is another research ship but not sponsored by NERC (Natural Environment Research Council) as with the James Cook, but by Defra. Cefas is the Centre for Environment, Fisheries & Aquaculture Science and is an agency of Defra. It is effectively the fisheries arm of government sponsored science. Their main base is in Lowestoft which is where the Cefas Endeavour is registered.

Yesterday I spotted an unidentified tanker being bunkered (refuelled) in Falmouth Bay. My binoculars were not good enough tho make out her name. It appears she is the MV Tarnvik . Tomorrow she departs Falmouth Bay and so do we.
