Protecting Lives and Livelihoods


FISH Safety Foundation

The FISH Safety Foundation is a dedicated international non-profit organisation that strives to create a safer and more positive safety culture within the global fishing industry. With recognition as one of the most hazardous industries worldwide, our independent foundation is committed to offering practical education, valuable resources, and necessary support.

We encourage and promote safe and sustainable fishing practices, and acknowledge the importance of commercial operators, fishers and fishing communities working together for the betterment of the entire industry.

When the Foundation talks of safety, it means safety from work-related physical harm or death, safety from preventable illness and disease, and safety from exploitation – very simply, safety from the abuse of basic human rights, whatever form that takes.

We also acknowledge the ever increasing importance of ensuring our oceans are healthy and the connection between safe fishing practices and sustainability.

By acting as an Industry voice, the FISH Safety Foundation allows for a synergistic approach to combating industry statistics.

  • Promoting a culture of Safety within all aspects of fishing.

  • Undertaking focused research in an effort to provide practical and useable knowledge.

  • Keeping the community informed with the latest news, developments, guidelines and protocols.

  • Providing Health and Safety training and consultancy services, with practical help, advice and support.

  • Encouraging the discussion of views, experiences, and procedures between everyone within the community in an effort to develop best practice protocols.
