Icebergs spotted by fishing boat crew  


4 Sep 07 - Back in its home port of Timaru yesterday, it wasn't just a catch of southern blue whiting the Tomi Maru 87 had on board. The crew also had photos of four icebergs spotted east of Bounty Island, 333 kilometres closer to New Zealand than the icebergs they saw near Campbell Island this time last year.

Fishing master Makoto Kudo said the icebergs seemed much larger than the ten they saw twelve months ago.

One of those seen on August 30 appeared to be 100 meters high (the equivalent of a 33 story building) and more than 500 meters long.
