Atlantic High Sea Fishing Director Bernardas Kristanavičius told BNS on Thursday that the company sold the ship more than a week ago, due mainly to a decrease in fishing areas.
"It was not loss-making to us. It was profitable, but problems will increase with time. All fishing areas have closed, but the European Union is not moving a finger to protect fishers' interests. They are just sitting in their offices silently," he said.
The Margiris gained international media attention after Greenpeace's attempts to prevent the supertrawler from leaving a Dutch port in June.
This week, Greenpeace activists tried to block the ship from docking at Port Lincoln in South Australia for being reflagged as an Australian vessel before heading for Tasmania to fish.
The 9,500-ton Margiris on Thursday docked at the Australian port despite Greenpeace activists' efforts to block it.
