Accident-prone small boat fleet

The smaller fishing fleet is disproportionately represented when it comes to fatal accidents in the Norwegian fishing industry. Capsizes and shipwrecks are the major causes of such accidents. These causes and the status of the fleet will now be analysed so that appropriate accident mitigation measures can be taken in the future. The project will be carried out jointly by SINTEF and the fisheries industry, and financed by the Norwegian Fishery and Aquaculture Research Fund (FHF).
