The Coast Guard has suspended its search for a fisherman who fell overboard near Juneau.
The man was identified Thursday as 63-year-old Richard Boyce of Haines.
The fisherman was aboard the 39-foot fishing vessel Eleanor S when he fell overboard Wednesday morning while trying to remove fishing gear from the vessel’s propeller.
The boat was near Mab Island 25 miles north of Juneau when the mishap occurred.
The Coast Guard says the crewman was wearing rain gear and no flotation device when he fell overboard in relatively calm seas.
A search was conducted covering more than 60 square miles. Several fishing vessels also participated in the search.
