Truly a very sad day for the Tuna Fleet. We lost a seiner yesterday , that simply put was the icon of the San Diego Tuna fleet the moment it was launched. And it was that way all the way to her end sitting in Samoa with a full load of fish. I rather remember her this way then the photos that are out now.
Wonderful looking seiner Pacific Princess being built at Campbells shipyard in San Diego . One of the few seiners still active today. Share your pictures with us at email@example.com

A look from up above on the Koorale , in San Diego it was the Royal Pacific . The Koorale always catches her fish. Probably the best kept boat still going in the American Fleet this rig is in great fishing condition .
