USCGC Boutwell (WHEC-719)

The U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Boutwell, stationed in Alameda, Calif., transfers over custody of the Lu Rong Yu 6007 fishing vessel to the Chinese Fisheries Law Enforcement Command (FLEC) here on Thursday. The crew from the Boutwell boarded the vessel while deployed as U.S. Coast Guard representatives in the North Pacific Coast Guard Forum (NPCGF). This six-nation forum consisting of China, Japan, South Korea, Canada, Russia, and the U.S., was developed to prevent high seas drift net fishing as well as illegal, unregulated and unreported (IUU) fishing.
