Report of the 2nd Regional Technical Workshop on Safety at Sea for Small Fishing Boat
The Second Regional Technical Workshop on Safety at Sea for Small Fishing Boats was held at the Training Department (TD) of the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center (SEAFDEC) in Samut Prakarn, Thailand from 20 to 23 April 2010, as a sequel to the First Regional Workshop on Safety at Sea for Small Fishing Boats which was organized by SEAFDEC in December 2003. Considering that safety at sea is a serious problem in developing countries, the First Regional Workshop recommended that the progress of the initiatives of the respective Southeast Asian countries in improving safety at sea for small fishing boats should be reviewed taking into account the international and regional initiatives on safety at sea. Thus, the Second Regional Technical Workshop was organized to review such initiatives with special focus on the establishment of a mechanism for recording the accidents at sea of fishing vessels, and on the need to improve the conditions of fishing boats and fishers in the Southeast Asian region.
