What is it?

The Safest Catch Program is free to all BC commercial fishermen.  It was developed by fishermen, for fishermen and was designed to remove the need for knowledge transfer from the classroom to the reality of a fishing vessel.

There are 3 main components to the Safest Catch:

  • Onboard, vessel-specific safety equipment orientation
  • Onboard, realistic and repeatable emergency drills
  • Vessel-specific, documented emergency procedures


What's in it for you?

At the end of the day, the Safest Catch empowers fishermen to take ownership of safety onboard their own vessel.  Other benefits include the following:

  • Compliance with regulations
  • Nationally recognized Safest Catch Decal
  • MED A3 certification - offered as an option upon request
  • Lots of FREE stuff!!  Participants receive hats and hoodies and skippers/masters receive over $200 in safety gear contained within a Damage Control Kit and/or Emergency Kit
