KTUU has some details on the federal indictment of a fishing vessel captain accused of illegal waste dumping:

According to federal charging documents, the alleged crime happened in June of 2017 when the fishing vessel, Alaskan Girl, was en route from Wrangell to Petersburg, Alaska with four bags, known as super sacks or brailer bags, on board. The bags contained sandblasting waste generated from the recent re-painting of the Alaskan Girl. The waste – totaling 16,000 pounds or 8 tons – had been loaded on to the vessel under the direction of Brannon Finney, captain of the Alaskan Girl.
