Lund’s Fisheries praises fishermen, scientists and the coastguard


CAPE MAY, NJ / ACCESSWIRE / October 29, 2022 / Two fishing vessels that have long supplied Lund’s Fisheries were involved in an incident sixty miles off the coast of Virginia yesterday morning. The F/V Tremont collided with a Panamanian flag cargo ship and sank. F/V Dyrsten, operating nearby, came to their aid.

Thanks to the efforts of the crew and captain of both ships, all thirteen on board survived the tragedy and were rescued.

Lund’s Fisheries commends the captains and crew of the Tremont for their prompt response to the emergency and the Dyrsten for their prompt arrival at the scene and their heroic actions to save everyone on board.

We also thank and commend the Coast Guard personnel from Virginia and North Carolina for their response and rescue efforts, and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution’s R/V Atlantis for using a small boat to transport the Tremont’s crew.

Thanks to the competent action of all those involved, injuries and fatalities could be avoided.
