Last Ghost Fleet ship leaves Suisun Bay after long pollution fight

East Bay Times

The last of 57 decaying vessels in the federal government’s iconic “Ghost Fleet” is set to leave Suisun Bay Friday, ending a long struggle over the toxic pollution leached from the old ships into waters near a major fish nursery and migration area... “The 57 ships become abandoned toxic junk,” said Sejal Choksi-Chugh, executive director of the Oakland-based San Francisco Baykeeper, an environmental watchdog group. “Their removal is a milestone in cleaning and protecting the bay.”
