WARRENTON, Ore. -- 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 reported that the statement from Capt. Bruce said 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 said a crew member without a life jacket fell overboard and disappeared Jan. 15 off the mouth of the Queets River on the Olympic Peninsula.
