CAPE MAY, NJ / ACCESSWIRE / October 29, 2022 / Yesterday morning, two fishing vessels, which have been long time suppliers to Lund’s Fisheries were involved in an incident sixty miles off the coast of Virginia. The F/V Tremont collided with a Panamanian-flagged cargo vessel and sunk. The F/V Dyrsten which had been operating nearby, came to their assistance.
Thanks to the efforts of the crew and captain of both vessels, all thirteen aboard survived the tragedy and were rescued.
Lund’s Fisheries commends the captains and crew members of the Tremont for their immediate response to the emergency situation, and the Dyrsten for their prompt arrival upon the scene and heroic actions to rescue all aboard.
We also thank and commend the Coast Guard personnel out of Virginia and North Carolina, for their response and rescue efforts, as well as the R/V Atlantis of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution for deploying a smallboat to transport the crew of the Tremont.
