Title Towards system for the management of safety on board artisanal fishing vessels: Proposal for check-lists and their application
Bibliographic information Feb. 2009, Vol.47, No.2, p.265-276. Illus. 38 ref.
Abstract The safety management systems applied at the international level in merchant vessels do not have their equivalent in the vessels dedicated to fishing, and much less to the most numerous sub-sector, artisanal fishing. This article outlines the findings of a research project conducted to assess the degree of safety existing in the artisanal fishing fleet of Andalusia, Spain. It offers a set of proposals aimed at improving safety, including the use of check-lists.
