Bisso Salvages Mackerel

August 26, 1999

Bisso Marine salvage crews raised M/V Mackerel from the Mississippi River. The vessel capsized and sank as it was entering the river from the Algiers Lock. A severe weather front precluded any safe operation from commencing, immediately. The salvage vessels - derrick Ajax and tugboats Tyler and Beau Bisso - stood by, waiting for weather conditions to improve. The actual salvage operation took eight hours to complete.
