    The derelict ship Deep Sea goes through the Ballard Locks in Seattle on Wednesday.

COUPEVILLE -- The Coast Guard said the derelict ship that shut down shellfish harvesting in Penn Cove has been moved from Whidbey Island and is heading to a Ballard shipyard to be dismantled.
Chief Warrant Officer Iain Wells said a tug boat started moving the Deep Sea about 5 a.m. for the trip of about 50 miles.
The 140-foot ship caught fire and sank May 12, leaking fuel. A crane barge raised the Deep Sea on Sunday.
The state Ecology Department says the spill response by various agencies has cost the state nearly $2 million.
The state Health Department said some Penn Cove shellfish beds reopened Tuesday, but some contamination was detected at others that remain closed for more testing next week.
