Abstract NIOSH recently completed an in-depth study of commercial fishing fatalities in the United States during 2000-2009. The purpose of the study was to identify the most hazardous fisheries around the country and to describe the unique safety issues in each. For this study, the United States were divided into four fishing regions: Alaska, West Coast, East Coast, and the Gulf of Mexico. A separate report is published for each region.
