Abstract The job of seep-sea fishermen is characterized by the variety of tasks to be accomplished, including fishing itself, the maintenance of fishing gear, on-deck watch duty, ship maintenance and cooking. From the standpoint of occupational medicine, work aptitude needs to take into account two essential characteristics found onboard trawlers: the close dependency of the men on each other during their work and the remoteness of medical help.
