Do you remember during the fifth episode of Season 8 when the crew of the FV Northwestern finds a rat aboard? The crew plays around with the critter until finally it goes overboard. Well, now apparently the State of Alaska is investigating the FV Northwestern for “harboring a rat” which can amount to a fine of up to $200,000 dollars. This story definitely has to be filed under the “Are you kidding me?!?” category. It’s a real story which you can read and/or listen to right here by By Stephanie Joyce, KUCB – Unalaska.
