Strong waves are reportedly slowing down the operation to pump out fuel from the Sea Master, a fishing vessel of Hassen Taher Fishing which wrecked on the reefs off St Brandon Island since last week. 

Defi Media reported that the rescue procedure was put on hold after the Met issued a warning of “strong swells” affecting Mauritius, Rodrigues and St Brandon.

According to the Ministry of the Environment, half of the oil (approx. 1,500 litres) have been removed.

Another fishing boat belonging to Hassen Taher Group, the Sea Tiger, was scheduled to reach the site to help in the pumping and refloating operations on Wednesday.
