The Star Laguna, one of the newest cargo ships visiting San Diego, called at Tenth Avenue Marine Terminal, where it offloaded 10,000 tons of fertilizer and four yachts. Owned by the Grieg Star shipping company based in Bergen, Norway, the Star Laguna will make regular visits to San Diego.

"The Port's cargo business makes an important contribution to our region's economic prosperity as part of the worldwide system of goods movement," said Commissioner Marshall Merrifield of the Board of Port Commissioners, who presented the plaque to Star Laguna Captain Dave V. Osunero. "The Grieg Star shipping company is among our most important cargo partners, and I'm pleased to welcome one of its newest and most modern vessels to our Port.
