A message from Maritime Archaeologist to Fishing Status
Subject: USS NARCISSUS
I'm the archaeologist for the USS NARCISSUS site and I noticed you've had the numbers posted on your site for a while. We're glad the site has evolved into a beautiful marine ecosystem and a successful fishing spot. Unfortunately, we're still working on permitting approval for the moorings so could you please add a comment on that page asking people to be careful where they anchor? We want you to catch fish, but we also don't want to disturb the shipwreck especially because it's a U. S. Navy Military Gravesite .
Thanks so much!
