The U.S. Coast Guard will hold public hearings this summer as part of its investigation into the disappearance of the F/V Destination.
The crab boat and its six crew members vanished off St. George Island in February.
For the Bering Sea crab fleet, it was the worst accident in more than a decade.
Officials say the hearings will focus on how weather and human misconduct may have played a role in the catastrophe.
The hearings will take place Aug. 7-18 at the Henry M. Jackson Federal Building in Seattle.
