On Saturday, 28 June, Cefas Endeavour will join vessels in port at Lowestoft and across the world to commemorate World War One. She will fly her ensign at half-mast from 08.00 to 18.00 +30 and sound her horn for 30 seconds at 18.00 hours - the time of the first shot fired in the conflict.
Smaller vessels in port will also be observing the remembrance.
Vessels at sea, across the world, will also fly flags and ensigns at half-mast to indicate mourning in remembrance of war.
Cefas Endeavour Master Captain, Paul Kersey said: "The Cefas Endeavour is one of thousands of vessels taking part today, and we're proud to play our small part in this important world-wide commemoration."
This WW1 Centenary event has been initiated by the International Maritime Organisation and the United National Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO).
