||This article discusses the health hazards faced by deep-sea fishermen, in particular smoking, alcoholism and poor diets. Other risk factors include noise (it is estimated that the average on-board exposure during the time spent at sea is higher than 85dB(A)), as well as postures and movements that can give rise to musculoskeletal diseases. Finally, there are stress, fatigue and other psychological risk factors that have effects on health and on the frequency of accidents.
