Search May Be Suspended for Missing Seabrooke Fisherman

          The name of the man who fell off the fishing vessel Seabrooke yesterday has not yet been released, and the Coast Guard is in the process of determining whether or not to continue the search for him.

The man fell overboard just before 10 a.m. Tuesday when his foot got tangled in a line while he was setting crab pots. The Seabrooke was fishing for tanner crabs about 22 miles northwest of Cold Bay at the time.

Coast Guard Petty Officer Walter Shinn in Juneau said the man's next of kin were notified yesterday afternoon and that the Coast Guard has a mandatory 24-hour waiting period after next of kin notification for release of information such as the man's name and hometown.

Shinn also said a Jayhawk helicopter was dispatched to the area at 10 a.m. this morning, and that the Coast Guard will search the area and re-evaluate the situation, making a determination whether to continue or abandon the search.

The Coast Guard reported Tuesday that the 40-year-old man was not wearing any sort of flotation device and is presumed dead. This is the first Bering Sea crab fishing fatality since 2005.

The Seabrooke is owned by Seabrooke Enterprises of Freewater, Oregon, but homeported in Kodiak.

Anchorage Daily News Reverses Decision to Halt Kodiak Delivery
Wednesday, 07 January 2009

            It looks like there was enough public outcry in Kodiak that the Anchorage Daily News has reversed its decision to stop shipping its paper here on a daily basis. But keeping the service will come at a small cost.

            In early December, Roger Weinfurter, the circulation director for the Daily News, announced that Alaska's largest paper would suspend shipment to rural Alaska after December 28th because of increasing costs. He said it costs $25,000 a month to air freight the paper every day.

            The only other option would have been to subscribe by mail, which would cost between $500 for fourth-class mail and $2,000 for first class mail. Delivery times would be between one day and two weeks after publication.

            But December 28th came and went, and the Daily News was still available at grocery stores and coin-operated boxes in Kodiak, one of the larger communities that was slated to lose service.

            A note from the Daily News taped to the news stand in the Safeway Liquor Store downtown thanked the people of Kodiak for contacting the paper and telling them how important the paper was to them.

            The cost for the paper is going up, though. The Monday-through-Saturday edition increase by a quarter, to a $1.25, while the Sunday paper will be priced at $3.

            There is no word on if other rural communities in Alaska will get such a reprieve. The Daily News planned to suspend service to all locations served by air except for Fairbanks, Valdez and Juneau. Remote areas on the mainland road system, such as Homer, would still receive the paper because of lower trucking prices.

Crewman Missing from Crabber Seabrook
Tuesday, 06 January 2009

This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it

            The Coast Guard is searching for a man who fell overboard from a crab boat this morning. The 40-year-old crew member was tangled in a line while setting a crab pot from the Kodiak-based fishing vessel Seabrooke at about 10 a.m.

            The boat was fishing for tanner crab about 22 miles northwest of Cold Bay. Coast Guard Petty Officer Walter Shinn said they do not know if he was wearing any sort of flotation device and the crew has not seen him since he went overboard.

            With water temperatures at 34 degrees and air temperatures at 19 degrees, Shinn said chances of survival are low. Three Coast Guard helicopters are searching the area for the man, who has not yet been identified.

            The last fatality in the crab fishery was in January of 2005.
