Proceedings Winter 2010-11 Issue Available Online

The current edition of Proceedings (Winter 2010-11 – Fishing Vessel Safety) is available online at http://www.uscg.mil/proceedings/.

This Fishing Vessel Safety issue contains a wealth of articles addressing U.S. Coast Guard efforts to prevent fishing vessel casualties at a very exciting and busy time in the prevention community, considering the recent passage of the Coast Guard Authorization Act of 2010.

The articles share lessons of the past as well as efforts to capitalize on research, to team with fishing industry stakeholders to provide realistic solutions, and to ensure that our personnel have the knowledge and ability to carry out our policies.

As you read the issue, we hope you will consider your role in fishing vessel safety and what you can do to make this program as successful as possible.
