Apollo South - Exposed Cable Sections

On behalf of Apollo SCS Ltd, fishermen are advised that following a recent repair to the Apollo South subsea telecoms cable there now exists a section of exposed/unburied cable in the vicinity of

49°04.76N  006°41.59W


Due to the nature of the seabed in this area the cable is exposed and could be a hazard to fishing. Fishermen are asked to ensure that they have the route of the Apollo South cable accurately plotted on their fishing charts. Trawler skippers are respectfully asked to exercise caution when trawling in the vicinity of the Apollo South cable and to keep beyond a distance of at least 500 metres from the charted cable route and where at all possible to avoid trawling directly over the cable route. Static gear fishermen are advised not to deploy anchors and end weights in close proximity of the cable.
