F/V Bonnie Marietta Charters

When not fishing for salmon or albacore, the Bonnie Marietta is available for research and support charters on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis, for the entire west coast. An owner-operated vessel can be a cost effective way to handle many ocean research needs. Captain Mark Tognazzini would be pleased to discuss the possibility of his participation in any of your projects. You can reach him at 805-441-1451.
