The Exercise of Fishermen's Labor Reward Request and Maritime Lien


If fishermen claim the maritime lien on the basis of labor reward request, the court shall pay attention to examining whether the ship concerned meets the definition of "seagoing ship". If the parties only claim to confirm the maritime lien, and the court considers that they are entitled with  maritime lien after examination, it may confirm it separately. But such confirmation does not affect the extinctive prescription of the maritime lien.Translated by Sun Yanan
