Seafarers Awareness Week 2019

seafarers 2019

In 2019 Seafarers UK is focusing on raising public awareness of the UK’s vital commercial fishing industry, especially the skippers and crews of boats operating from the beaches, harbours and ports around our island nation – none of which are further than 70 miles from any UK resident!

A professional fisherman’s job can be challenging, frequently facing harsh weather, hazardous working conditions, restrictions on what can be caught, and fluctuating market prices.

But it can also be a very rewarding lifestyle. Fishermen are resourceful and resilient and often demonstrate a broad range of skills equivalent to that of many small business entrepreneurs!

Seafarers UK has already called upon Government to ensure that fishermen’s lives are as well protected as the fish they catch.

This plea followed in the wake of a major research project – commissioned by Seafarers UK – that focused on a diverse selection of the UK’s ports and harbours, culminating in the publication of a free 48-page Fishing for a Future report.

On Tuesday 9 July Seafarers UK will be hosting an invitation-only reception at Fishmongers’ Hall in London, to promote the charity’s funding for initiatives that improve the safety, health and welfare of UK fishermen and their coastal communities.
