    (Oct. 8, 2007) ONBOARD THE USCGC BOUTWELL - Boarding teams, from the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Boutwell, boarded the Fishing Vessels Lu Rong Yu 6105, 2660 and 2659. The boarding team quickly determined that all the vessels were rigged for high-seas drift net fishing and is currently escorting the vessels back into Chinese custody. The Boutwell is currently deployed as U.S. Coast Guard representatives in the North Pacific Coast Guard Forum (NPCGF). This forum was developed to combat illegal fishing and increase international maritime safety and security on the Northern Pacific Ocean and its borders.
