Abandoned and derelict vessels pose significant economic, environmental and navigational threats to harbors and waters throughout Alaska. The AAHPA has been pro-active on this issue, helping to catalyze the formation of the statewide ad-hoc ADV Task Force.
If you know of a vessel of concern, please report it using this joint agency Vessel of Concern Reporting Form.
The Task Force, with the help of the law firm Birch Horton Bittner and Cherot, developed a workbook of templates for municipalities to help with impounding vessels.
For more information on the 2014 - 2016 ADV Task Force, please see their website.
