Fishing Vessel Safety: Blueprint for a National Program
Committee on Fishing Vessel Safety, Commission on Engineering and Technical Systems, Division on Engineering and Physical Sciences, National Research Council
National Academies Press, Jan 15, 1991 - Technology & Engineering - 266 pages
In response to a continuing high loss of commercial fishing vessels and crews, the U.S. Congress has mandated development of new safety requirements for the industry. This volume provides a blueprint for an integrated national safety program that responds realistically to industry conditions, with priority on the most cost-effective alternatives. Fishing Vessel Safety addresses the role of the U.S. Coast Guard and the fishing industry and evaluates such safety measures as vessel inspection and registration, and the training and licensing of fishermen. It explores vessel condition, the role of human behavior, the problem of weather prediction, the high cost of insurance, and more.
