UPDATE: Greek Amver ship rescues fishermen

Bravo Zulu to Captain Barakas and the crew of the Greek Diana Shipping managed bulker Semirio, for a job well done in this week's recent rescue of several fishermen. The other day we reported 10 fishermen were rescued, the correct number is nine. The Semirio is a Marshall Island flagged vessel.

Thanks to the Navy aircraft and our partners at U.S. Coast Guard Sector Guam for helping coordinate this case.

Here are some photos of the rescue operation showing just how dangerous the situation was for the fishermen 700 miles from land.
