Under the terms of the final judgment, Royal Pacific agreed to pay $80,000, including $10,000 in civil penalties and $70,000 in restitution for environmental damage. Royal Pacific is required to properly maintain and operate its fishing vessels in a manner that would minimize the likelihood of oil spills.
