A safety program created for fishermen and delivered by fishermen test piloted in British Columbia

FISH SAFE has helped to move forward a culture of safety and helped fishermen in British Columbia to see where the safety shortcomings are on their own vessels. But the idea has always been that this is a program that could benefit the fishing industry in all of Canada. With this in mind, this week and part of next week, a version of the program – Safest Catch Nova Scotia – is undergoing a pilot project on the East Coast of the country, with some training and execution of the program happening in southwestern Nova Scotia, including in Yarmouth and Digby counties.
