Fishery Support Vessel Has All Female Crew

On a door of the F/V Kamilar is a sticker with pink script: “Girls fish too.”

And in the case of this boat, it is girls only.

Vessel owner Brannon Finney is captaining the tender for the Sitka sac roe herring fishery with her all-female crew – something that’s rare for the fast and frenzied commercial fishery.

Finney’s rotating crew is comprised of cousin Kelsey Kubik of Sitka, Bettina Nichols of Astoria, Ore., Sandra Coats of Ketchikan and Annea Martinsen of Petersburg. They are packing for Petersburg’s Icicle Seafoods.

Here’s a link to this interesting article about some impressive ‘gals on the water’.
