Enforcement of commercial fishing vessel safety rules begins October 15, 2015

Fishermen’s News Online has an article reminding commercial fishermen about the October 15, 2015 deadline for coming into compliance with new safety requirements, including mandatory dockside examinations to ensure compliance with legal requirements that have been around since 1988.  The Coast Guard will also begin enforcing these requirements for State numbered commercial fishing vessels that operate more than 3 miles offshore – not just fishing vessels documented with the Coast Guard. The article can be found at this link.
