A salvage team is now using an oil skimmer to remove oil contained within the closed off area around the MV Southern Phoenix.

Maritime Safety Authority of Fiji CEO John Tunidau says they continue to monitor the situation and have response teams on standby in case of any emergency.

He says the Salvage team continues to dive daily to ensure any leak is detected immediately and rectified.

Tunidau says 25 containers have so far been recovered from the site and one trailer has also been recovered.
