Coast Guard Saves Sea Turtle
The U.S. Coast Guard has come to the aid of an entangled sea turtle south of Great Duck Island. Crew members aboard the cutter Moray noticed a lobster buoy moving erratically in the water near the boat while conducting a routine boarding of a fishing vessel. The crew pulled alongside the buoy Wednesday and noticed the turtle entangled in the line and unable to swim away or dive. They helped out the turtle and watched it swim off. The Moray is an 87-foot patrol boat homeported in Jonesport.
