After a two-week deployment to Bristol Bay, Coast Guard inspectors in the Marine Safety Task Force returned to Anchorage late June, according to a Coast Guard press release. They were conducting missions to support the commercial fishing season.
Coast Guard law enforcement teams conducted boardings and enforced maritime law throughout the Bristol Bay region. Coast Guard inspectors also conducted 370 dockside exams and issued 330 decals to vessels that passed inspection.
During this deployment, the Marine Safety Task Force received assistance from the Alaska Army National Guard and Civil Air Patrol for flights around the region.
