The Tartu University Estonian Marine Institute has gained a research vessel, and the director of the Institute, Toomas Saat, said fisheries researchers have been longing for this special equipment, because it will broaden research possibilities.

"Until now, we have only had modified fishing boats, which are not the most suitable for precise science," Saat said.

The research vessel Aurelie will sail the gulfs of Pärnu and Riga, where it can provide in addition to ichthyology and fisheries based research, sample analysis and coastal water monitoring.

The ship was built in Uulu, Pärnumaa, in a shipyard called “Polar Shipyard”. The length of the ship is 15 meters, the width is 4.3 meters, and the vessel draft under the water is a little under 1 meter.

The Aurelie cost around 400,000 euros and was funded by the European Fisheries Fund.
