F/V Nushagak Spirit trip terminated for safety violations

The voyage of the fishing vessel Nushagak Spirit was terminated near Dutch Harbor after Coast Guard discovered several safety issues and environmental concerns on board the vessel.

The Coast Guard crew boarded the Nushagak Spirit three nautical miles east of Umnak Island where they discovered one fishing violation, 14 safety violations and the improper discharge of bilge water.

The vessel’s master admitted to pumping water from the bilge over the side of the vessel, a violation of the Clean Water Act.

The fishing violation consisted of not having a proper logbook. The safety violations consisted of three life rings that were missing retro tape, nine fire extinguishers that required inspection and missing waste management and safety plans.
