Posted: Tuesday, October 10, 2000

ANCHORAGE (AP) -- A South Korean fishing boat seized earlier this year in Alaska waters goes on the auction block next week.

The Arctic Wind will be auctioned off Monday, said Carol Tocco with the National Marine Fisheries Service.

The 125-foot vessel was seized in May for illegal, high seas driftnet fishing.

Everything on board will go as well, including furniture, electronics and related equipment, Tocco said.

The vessel will be sold the highest bidder with the minimum bid set at $70,000, she said.
