The 50 foot long fishing vessel Fjord Mist sank off James Island, Washington. The Fjord Mist was fishing for hagfish when the vessel began to fill with water. The Coast Guard was contacted and two rescue craft along with a helicopter were directed to the scene. A dewatering pump was dropped to the Fjord Mist, but the water ingress was too much for the pumps. The three crew of the Fjord Mist were evacuated before the vessel sank. The Fjord Mist rests in 100 feet of water. The crew were safely taken to the Coast Guard station at Quillayute River. Some pollution was spotted as some of the 150 gallons of fuel on board the vessel was released in to the water. Coast Guard has launched an investigation into the incident.
