The Motor Vessel Tecam Sea is a bulk carrier built in 1984. The ship was built in Hitachi Innoshima, Japan, and purchased by Sea Quality, a shipping company based in Athens, Greece. The ship was involved in a collision with the M/V Federal Fuji in the port of Sorel, Quebec on 27 April 2000.[1] The squat effect phenomenon is believed to be a factor in the collision.

The Tecam Sea, under Panamanian ownership, was involved in illegal oil-waste dumping off the Canadian coast on 8 Sept 2002, resulting in eight serious pollution charges. Due to improper handling of the case by authorities, the case was dismissed and charges were dropped.[2]
