This manual aims to contribute to a culture of safety awareness among fisherfolk in the Caribbean, reduce the number of accidents and increase the chances of survival if accidents occur. Through explanatory illustrations, the manual provides guidance on safety matters related to work on a small-scale fishing vessel (e.g. fire safety, deck safety, lifesaving equipment, lighting and ventilation), personal safety, and navigational safety. Checks and procedures to be performed before a fishing trip, as well as guidance for survival at sea, are also included in this manual. The manual is designed primarily for fishers who use vessels of less than 12 metres in length. However, additional tips are included at the end of each chapter to include bigger fishing vessels of up to 20 metres in length.
