A carrier vessel is a type of vessel used to transport fish, supplies, and crew to and from fishing vessels, allowing fishing vessels to stay out at sea for longer periods of time. A carrier vessel can receive catch, or ‘tranship’, from one or more fishing vessels at sea or in port and then offload the catch at a chosen port or fish processing location.
