Crabbers Warned of Safety Concerns Along Oregon Coast

By Jim McCoy Tue 29th January NewscrabbingOregon coast
The U.S. Coast Guard has put out a warning to Dungeness crabbers in the Pacific Northwest: Get your rest and wear your life jackets. The World in Coos Bay reports on the statement from Capt. Bruce Jones. Jones says fatigue is a leading cause of commercial fishing casualties, and it played a role in the grounding recently of vessels near Cape Arago in Oregon and Willapa Bay in Washington state. He says a crew member without a life jacket fell overboard and disappeared Jan. 15 off the mouth of the Queets River on Washington's Olympic Peninsula. Associated Press
