Heading out on a state commercial fisheries survey, the R/V Gloria Michelle is a repossessed commercial fishing vessel that was seized by NOAA as part of a drug raid decades ago. It is now used as a research vessel, conducting various fisheries based trips, based out of Woods Hole, Massachusetts. She is crewed by NOAA employees, and has a rotating group of scientists who make use of her abilities.
