"At this time of year the area is used as wintering ground by common edible species such as hairtail, yellow croaker, chub mackerel and blue crab," Greenpeace said."The area is also on the migratory pathway of many marine mammals, such as humpback whale, right whale and gray whale." The tanker was carrying more than 1 million barrels of condensate, an extremely light crude oil, to South Korea when it collided with the freighter.

Here the chub mackerel Scomber japonicus Houttuyn 1782 (Perciformes: Scombridae) is a pelagic fish of high economic importance that records the best historical landings after the Peruvian anchovy Engraulis ringens and the Chilean jack mackerel Trachurus murphyi (Montecino & Lange 2009).

These 5 species, together with the Atlantic chub mackerel (Scomber colias [Scombridae]), gray triggerfish (Balistes capriscus [Balistidae]), American coastal pellona (Pellona harroweri [Pristigasteridae]), piquitinga anchovy (Anchoa tricolor [Engraulidae]), and harvestfish (Peprilus paru [Stromateidae]), accounted for 91% of the total biomass sampled (Table 4).

The initial amount of TVB-N in both fishes showed freshness, and this is in agreement with initial measured amount of TVB-N for chub mackerel and hake (Goudlas and Kontaminas, 2005; Sikorski and Kostuch, (2003) salmon, whiting and mackerel (Fagan et al., 2003).
