Fishing safety has been in the news a lot recently. In Alaska, pods of killer whales have been terrorising fishing crews, while in Canada, a fisherman tragically lost his life after rescuing a whale trapped in lines.
Safety is always at the top of our agenda when designing products – as it should be for anyone setting foot on a fishing vessel – so we want your help to put together the ultimate guide to fishing safety.
Whether it’s a must-have piece of safety gear, or a habit you’ve developed over the years that keeps you out of harm’s way, we want to know about it. Leave your comments below about safety tips for working at sea.
