Operation Icefish Edit
Perlon has managed escape capture by law enforcement during its 60-year career. In April 2015 perlon was boarded by the Australian coast guard off the coast of the Cocos Islands and was escorted out of Australian Waters. A week later perlon pulled into the port of Tanjung Penyusup and rendezvous with a tugboat and a barge of a clamshell crane to offload its illegal catch. The Malaysian Coast Guard arrived a few minutes later and arrested perlon on the spot and it is now detained in the port of Tanjung Penyusup awaiting sale and eventual scrapping.
