Notes: Quiet day in the ZTA. One panga was observed overnight outside the ZTA from 00:30-06:30. Panga counting, and hourly radar photos stopped as we left the ZTA for Gonzaga at 12:30.

Between 08:30-09:30 we observed many pangas crossing the ZTA. 10:30 we spotted the Claudia panga pulling nets within the ZTA in the W sector. Between 10:30 – 12:00 we spotted 2 pangas with no name/ID pulling nets in the S sector. Just after 12:30 on our way to leave the ZTA we spotted the Norma panga pulling nets in the CW sector.

Figure 1. Panga stayed overnight in VR

Figure 2. Claudia panga noted as TT 042. Radar was giving us lots of issues as conditions were quite choppy today. Targets in the VR are the many pangas noted crossing the ZTA.

Figure 3. Norma panga approx. 2nm directly infront of our bow. Again, radar difficulties lost target.
