Boarded by Fisheries!!!

Sept 7th,

It was a good day.  Weather was pretty nice, and the coring went well.  Of course, the food was great as usual.  Attached are some pictures.  The highlight of the day was definitely being followed by the Navy ship and boarded by the Fisheries officers.  We certainly were not in violation of anything, but a ship we saw earlier in the day throwing lingcod over the side likely was not behaving appropriately.  Apparently, Fisheries works closely with the Navy on managing the waters.  Unfortunately, I need to get back to eat some dinner.  I'll let the other pics speak for themselves.  Enjoy.  J.P.
