La. commercial fishing leader’s boat burns, sinks before he goes to DC to advocate for fishermen

Sinking or catching fire are the two of the worst dangers for commercial fishermen and their vessels. Both happened to George Barisich two weeks ago when his beloved fishing vessel Peruga sank in Lake Borgne. I had to run out the door. No wallet, no glasses, no phone. That’s how quick it was.” Barisich said he and his deckhand Robert Campo, Jr., came close to jumping in the cold water. Tuesday he was expected to fly to Washington D.C., to seek disaster relief money for fishermen hurt by last year’s Bonnet Carre Spillway openings. >click to read<. >click for GoFundMe page< 21:02
