Fishermen recognize that the potential for stability incidents in the herring fishery are high and that the incidence of serious injury and fatalities has historically been very high as well. An accident or incident can happen to any fisherman at any time and these Best Practices have been developed to help lower the risk to everyone involved.

This ‘Best Practices’ document is a collaborative effort by fishermen and members of the Herring Industry Advisory Board (HIAB) in an effort to assist fishermen in reducing or removing threats to stability, improving safety procedures and providing a quality product.
