Recovery Efforts for Miss Kelley Continue

Friday, February 03, 2006
The U.S. Coast Guard and California Department of Fish and Game’s Office of Spill Prevention and Response recently ceased the pollution response operations onboard the fishing vessel Miss Kelley. Early on January 26, in Fort Bragg, the U.S. Coast Guard rescued two fishermen from the fishing vessel and began pollution response efforts when the vessel stranded on a beach near the Noyo River entrance. Oil-absorbent pads were placed in the fish hold to remove the oil contained in that space and then removed and properly disposed. Further actions to contain and remove the oil were impossible because of the remote location of and high energy surf conditions around the vessel. On January 30, the tanks were sounded again and were found to be empty. The response and cleanup efforts have ended because there is no further threat of pollution, but recovery efforts for the vessel continue. (Source: The Eureka Reporter)
