Spike in fishing vessel deaths peaks Transportation Safety Board’s interest

A spike in deaths relating to the fishing industry has the Transportation Safety Board re-evaluating regulations for fishing vessels.

So far in 2018, Canada has seen 17 deaths onboard fishing vessels, the most since 2004.

According to the TSB, the majority of those deaths are due to people not properly using floatation or other safety devices.

As a result, they have made a number of recommendations, including: provincial and federal authorities working together to eliminate commercial oversight, user friendly vessel stability guidelines, among other suggestions.

The Board went on to say that they were tired of issuing recommendations that go largely ignored.
