    New York-based Bouchard Transportation and three former and current company officials have paid $375,000 in restitution to a whistleblower who the company fired after cooperating with a federal investigation into a deadly barge explosion off Port Aransas, Texas in 2017.

    The seamen, who was also an employee of Bouchard Transportation, was the brother of one of two seamen killed in the barge explosion. He alleged the company fired him for cooperating with investigators and reporting safety concerns to the U.S. Coast Guard.

    The explosion occurred on Oct. 20, 2017, off Port Aransas aboard the Buster Bouchard/B. No. 255.
