The Safety and Communications sub-group has two main focuses. The first looks for ways to improve how safety messages are passed on to fishermen while the second considers data collected by the MAIB and tries to target fishermen’s training with new material to combat accidents and incidents.
The Maritime and Coastguard Agency issues guidance to fishermen in the form of M Notices. The link below directs you the MCA website page leading to a list of current notices. Please note that notices relevant to the fishing industry carry the suffix (F).
