BERING SEA - Seaman Niels Christiansen (front) and Seaman Bobby Myers, both members of a CGC Sherman boarding team, inspect immersion suits aboard Fishing Vessel Baranof Nov. 20, 2008, during a law enforcement boarding. Boarding teams operate in extreme weather and sea conditions to prevent violations of U.S. law, inspecting fishing licenses and permits, emergency alarms and drills, logbooks and safety and firefighting equipment. The boarding occurred during a two-month long Alaska Patrol when Sherman crewmembers conduct fisheries enforcement, law enforcement, and search and rescue in the Bering Sea.
