I bought 43′ Idle Hour from Rodney Atkins in Eureka in 1977. She was built in 1948 and lost her stern in 1964 during the tsunami in Crescent City. Her bat wings made for a nice ride. I sold her to a guy who took her to Yakutat.
AAFA was the first MSC Certified Pole & Line Tuna Fishery
AAFA has been awarded the Marine Stewardship Council's coveted eco-label for sustainable fishing. Products from the AAFA tuna fishery may now carry the Marine Stewardship Council eco-label which will distinguish it as a certified sustainable and well-managed fishery. This is the first tuna fishery in the world to receive the accolade.
