||Andalusia, Spain, has an important tradition in the fishing sector. In order to analyse the sector, a total number of boats to be surveyed was set at 10% of the total fleet. The sample of 202 boats was distributed among the four fishing techniques and gear. The questionnaire used for the survey consisted of two parts, one on health and working conditions, the other on technical and safety characteristics of work in traditional fishing, the aim of the study being to present a new approach in the policies for reducing the risk in this sector. Findings are discussed.
