The clean up of the Pollack fishing vessel Mar-Gun is going smoothly. The vessel went aground last week on St George Island. At the end of the day yesterday, the Coast Guard strike crew had removed 5,782 gallons of diesel fuel from the grounded fishing vessel. About 9,000 gallons remain. The only sign of pollution was a light sheen of oil in the water near an empty tank that was slightly damaged.
