The 1970-built, 17,033-dwt, general cargo and container ship Netuno is seen in this photograph possibly while she was underway in the St. Lawrence River -Quebec, Canada on July 29th, 1988.

She was built in Brazil and sailed under the name Netuno until 1995. She was renamed Bicha Do Mar at that time however she operated for only a short time. Late in 1995 Bicha Shipping Co. Ltd., Malta sold the aging ship for dismantling in India. She finally arrived off Alang on January 14th, 1996 and was beached there several days later on the 21st. In the months that followed she was reduced to scrap metal. Photograph by Rene Beauchamp.
