** It is possible that Nevskiy 36 was built by the shipyard in Russia on speculation and later sold uncompleted to Marine Delta Shipping who had her towed to Poland for completion. The ship would seem to have entered service as Cast Salmon

** 10 February 2005 - Cast Salmon currently hauls containers between the ports of Zeebrugge, Antwerpen and Oostende in Belgium, Felixstowe in Great Britain and Vlissingen and Rotterdam in The Netherlands. She is rarely in any of these ports for very long and sometimes calls at the port of Zeebrugge twice a day

** February 2005 - at present Captain is Dutch while the rest of the crew is Dutch , Indonesian and Polish - total of 8 people
