April 14, 2022 - U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Munro crew members prepare to disembark after conducting a boarding of South Korean-flagged fishing vessel Dong Won in the South Pacific, southwest of the Howland/Baker Islands, as part of Operation Blue Pacific. Munro’s deployment aims to counter illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing, and strengthen relationships to enhance maritime sovereignty and security throughout the Indo-Pacific.
