US Coast Guard ‘Angela McShan’ Visits Island

April 18, 2022 | 0 Comments

The U.S. Coast Guard cutter “Angela McShan” is currently visiting Bermuda, with the vessel set to serve as “part of a multi-month fisheries enforcement operation in partnership with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Royal Bermuda Regiment and Coast Guard, and the Bermuda Police Service.”

A spokesperson previously said, “The cutter will be the first of three Coast Guard ships that will patrol seaward of the Bermuda Exclusive Economic Zone [EEZ], which extends 230 miles from shore. The joint operation will expand upon the long-standing U.S.-Bermuda partnership, as well as emphasize protection of the environment and living marine resources in this region.

“The operation is a result of recent meetings between Bermuda’s Deputy Governor Alison Crocket, Deputy Premier Walter Roban, Permanent Secretary in Bermuda’s Ministry of Home Affairs Rozy Azhar, United States Consul General in Bermuda Karen Grissette and Rear Admiral Laura Dickey, the U.S. Coast Guard Fifth District Commander. The professional exchange focused on increasing efforts to counter illegal, unreported and unregulated [IUU] fishing, a global issue recently detected in the Mid-Atlantic.”
