Rio Maranon Class Fisheries Research Vessel

(Historical data)

This is the trawler Rio Maranon, which was converted into service as a fisheries research vessel. She's got a limited armament for policing and wartime purposes.

The ship is somewhat large and fast for a trawler; her civilian owners found her too expensive to economically operate, but it suited the Marina's needs reasonably well.
