300-Page Fishing Vessel Safety Manual Published

The Vessel Safety Manual, prepared for the commercial fishing industry in conjunction with the North Pacific Fishing Vessel Owner's Association (NPFVOA), the U.S. Coast Guard and the National Marine Fisheries Service, was recently published.

Some 300 pages long, with more than 300 illustrations, the manual represents one of the most comprehensive sets of operational recommendations ever prepared for the U.S. commercial fishing industry.

The Vessel Safety Manual is priced at $30 per copy (Washington residents add $2.37 per copy state sales tax) with proceeds used to sustain the NPFVOA Crew Training Program and related safety activities.

In 1987, the NPFVOA Safety Program intends to create a set of video tapes devoted to fishing vessel safety, to complement the manual and the training program.

To order copies of the Vessel Safety Manual, telephone: (206) 283-0861 or write: NPFVOA Vessel Safety Program, Building C-3, Room 207, Fishermen's Terminal, Seattle, Wash. 98119.
