The U.S. Coast Guard has many diverse missions, like search and rescue, but one of our many missions is to protect our ocean environment and living marine life by enforcing domestic and international fisheries laws.
Recently, the US Coast Guard Cutter Bernard C. Webber crew did just that when they conducted a boarding approximately 2 miles east of Lake Worth Inlet and issued a fisheries violation to enforce our domestic fisheries laws and regulations.
living marine resources are valuable to our nation and our Coast Guard crews will continue to enforce the laws and regulations for marine safety and for protecting the nation's
living marine resources.
We would like to remind ALL mariners to read, follow and abide by all federal, state and international fisheries laws and regulations.
