            description:  ICES request for the vessel Skogafoss from ANTIGUA AND BARBUDA. NOTE: Platform code AGSK for SKOGAFOSS has been deprecated because it represents multiple hulls. US NODC and ICES no longer attribute data to platform identifier AGSK. Use AGSA for data collected before 1996 by Antigua and Barbuda platform SKOGAFOSS, call sign V2GR. Use AGSB for data collected from 1988 until August 1998 by Antigua and Barbuda platform SKOGAFOSS, call sign V2QT. Use AGSC for data collected from September 2000 until July 2007 by Antigua and Barbuda platform SKOGAFOSS, call sign V2XM. Do not use AGSK to identify a platform for any data collection from any time. Name : Skogafoss Flag : ANTIGUA AND BARBUDA - AG (ISO Country Code) Call Sign : V2XM Platform Class : 32 Vessel of opportunity IMO : 8203646 Commissioned Date : 2000-09-26 Decommissioned Date : 2007-07 Current Length : 106.5 Built : 1982 Notes : Launched as CCNI ANTARTICO in 1983, became ORIOLUS in 1989, NEDLLOYD DRAGON in 1993, GODAFOSS in 1994. Became SKOGAFOSS in 2000 and Letoon in 2007. Data at NOAA for 2004-2005.
