16/06/14: Role of Fisheries Management - FAO

Fisheries management regimes affect safety. As a result, improved safety should become an explicit objective of fisheries management, which must ensure that the fishing effort is commensurate with the state of fishery resources. The key lesson learned from FAO's experiences in implementing safety activities that recommendations, no matter how sound, do not form and adequate basis for administrations to act or for industry to respond. Despite the development of instruments and guidelines related to the design. Construction and equipment of fishing vessels (with more stringent regulations at national level), the accident rate in the fishing industry remains unacceptably high.
