Description

This bulletin summarizes methods for reducing fuel consumption and saving money, based on published studies and experiences of commercial fishing vessel operators. On the fuel saving checklist are slowing down, keeping the bottom smooth and clean, reducing weight, watching the exhaust, checking propeller and steering, using Internet and AIS to monitor conditions, minimizing travel, keeping boat records, and working with wind, tides, and currents. Combining these small changes can result in significant improvement in fuel efficiency.

This is part of the Alaska Sea Gram series.
