Cutter DEPENDABLE Completes Patrol off the Northeast Coast of the U.S.

The crew of the Coast Guard Cutter DEPENDABLE will be returning to homeport, Cape May, New Jersey, on Monday, July 28, 2003, following a 56-day deployment. DEPENDABLE, a 210 foot Medium Endurance Cutter, has a 72-person crew and spends over 185 days a year deployed from the Hague line off the Northeastern United States to the Caribbean. Her primary missions are law enforcement, search and rescue, and maritime homeland security. On this deployment, DEPENDABLE focused on conducting Operation Atlantic Venture to enforce fisheries laws and ensure the safety of all who sail offshore from New Jersey to the Gulf of Maine. In only six weeks, DEPENDABLE boarded over 70 fishing vessels, conducted 7 multi-unit Search and Rescue cases and terminated the voyage of one fishing vessel in especially hazardous condition. In a unique event, DEPENDABLE also escorted a private vessel carrying the First Lady of the United States on a short cruise along the U.S. coast. Commercial fishing has been noted to be one of the most dangerous jobs in America. In addition to enforcing fisheries laws, DEPENDABLE boarding teams inspected fishing vessels to ensure compliance with the Commercial Fishing Vessel Safety Act. This law, which was passed in 1988, protects the lives of every fisherman who goes to sea by requiring specific safety equipment on every fishing vessel
