US Coast Guard Braces for Western Alaska Winter Fisheries

This year’s forward operating location will consist of one Jayhawk with rotating crews from Kodiak. A second Jayhawk and crew will remain at the ready in Kodiak to assist in any long-range or complex cases. The forward operating location in Cold Bay ensures the Coast Guard will be able to assist fish harvesters working in and around Bristol Bay, the Bering Sea and the Aleutian Islands. A Coast Guard cutter equipped with an MH-65 Dolphin helicopter from Air Station Kodiak will also be on patrol in the region throughout the season. [email protected] 16:45
