Brand new fish carrier grounding, Norway

Brand new fish carrier RONIA DIAMOND ran aground on a rocky shallow north of Sortland, Norway, in the morning Dec 13. Vessel managed to come off rocks by own means, in about an hour or less than an hour, and headed for Sortland for survey, escorted by salvage boat RS Knut Hoem.
