National Fisherman

The RCMP, the Department of National Defense (DND) and the Canadian Coast Guard completed their assessment of the Miss Ally early on Sunday, Feb. 24.

At 8:30 a.m. a remotely operated vehicle underwater (ROV) from HMCS Glace Bay entered the water and conducted an assessment of the over-turned hull of the Miss Ally.

The ROV captured imagery of the over-turned vessel to allow the Fleet Diving Unit to assess the situation. Upon reviewing the images the unit recommended that additional diving operations were not required.

The assessment confirmed the Miss Ally sustained significant damage. The wheelhouse and sleeping quarters were not attached to the vessel.

No bodies of the five missing fishermen were located.
