The trimaran-variant littoral combat ship USS Jackson from San Diego arrived in Papeete, Tahiti, this week for a scheduled port visit while on a mission to enforce fisheries laws.

The Jackson is deployed to the Oceania region with an embarked Coast Guard detachment conducting maritime law enforcement operations in support of U.S. and Pacific Island nations’ fisheries laws.

“Jackson’s port visit to Tahiti reflects the historic and strong relationship between France and the United States,” said Denise Bauer, U.S. ambassador to France. “This visit will present invaluable opportunities to meet with local communities and to reinforce the critical partnership between our forward deployed naval forces.”

The warship’s patrol is part of a program that leverages Department of Defense assets in the region to improve maritime security in Oceania.

“I am extremely thankful for the hospitality and generosity shown to us by the people of Tahiti and members of the French armed forces in the planning for this port visit,” said Capt. Marc Crawford, commodore of Littoral Combat Ship Squadron ONE.

All of the trimaran-variants of the littoral combat ship fleet are based in San Diego.
