Airbag recall may affect some NMI vehicles
Certain models of Toyota, Honda, Mazda, Nissan, and Mitsubishi vehicles sold in the Northern Mariana Islands may be subject to a recall because of defective airbags. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recently announced the recall and identified the Northern Marianas as one of the geographic areas of special concern because the defective Takata airbags are more prone to failure in areas with consistently high temperatures and humidity. The agency urged owners of impacted vehicles to contact their dealer’s service department and make arrangements for repair as soon as possible. A complete list of affected vehicles listed by make, model, and year of manufacture is available at http://www.nhtsa.gov/About+NHTSA/Press+Releases/Vehicle-owners-with-defective-airbags-urged-to-take-immediate-action. Owners may also look up their vehicle identification number on manufacturers' websites to confirm whether the vehicle has an open recall that needs to be addressed.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration released the NMI data this week as part of the agency’s annual report on commercial landings.

Commercial fishing in the Northern Marianas is growing faster than in the rest of the country. Overall, U.S. landings increased 2.5 percent, and the value of the catch increased 7.6 percent. The NOAA report is available at http://www.st.nmfs.noaa.gov/commercial-fisheries/fus/fus13/index.
