USCG to conduct free commercial fishing vessel dockside exams
May 3, 2018
The Coast Guard Commercial Fishing Vessel Examiner will be conducting free courtesy docksides in Wrangell from May 14-17. Fishermen interested, should contact Jim Paul at 907-617-2523 in Ketchikan.
The new vessel specific checklist generator located at www.fishsafewest.info is a useful tool that provides a detailed list of fishing vessel requirements tailored to the fishing vessel.
Mandatory exams are required for all commercial fishing vessels that operate beyond three miles from shore. No tickets will be issued.
