One of the most important changes in Prince William Sound is the inclusion of local fishing vessels in oil spill planning and response. The fishermen bring valuable knowledge about local waters during a spill response. Participants in this program are trained annually to transport response equipment, and deploy and tend boom. Find out more about this and many other changes at one of the events listed.
