By Thursday, it appeared most of the clean-up works for the fishing boat that had been beached near Bermagui had been completed.
NSW Maritime is managing the clean-up of the 18-metre fishing vessel Salvatore V from Haywards Beach, north of Bermagui, with staff on the ground and on the water removing debris into skip bins.
On Thursday, a Transport for NSW spokesperson said contractors have been engaged to operate heavy machinery including excavators as part of the work to clean up the vessel and any debris on the beach and in the water.
"To reduce the likelihood of pollution, 3000litres of diesel and other small amounts of hydrocarbons were removed from the vessel on Saturday morning," they said.
The Transport for NSW spokesperson said the salvage is expected to be complete by Saturday, November 28, weather and sea conditions permitting.
NSW Maritime will continue to ensure the area remains safe and monitor for any pollution.
Members of the community are reminded to report debris found on the beach to 13 12 36 (option 2).
NSW Maritime is working closely with supporting agencies including NSW Police Marine Area Command, Australian Maritime Safety Authority, Environment Protection Authority, Fire and Rescue NSW and National Parks and Wildlife Service and Bega Valley Council to ensure there is minimal impact on the community and environment during the salvage operation.
