Srinath, Krishna and Rajeev, P (1995) The use of sea safety measures by fishermen. Marine Fisheries Information Service, Technical and Extension Series, 139 . pp. 8-9.



It was seen from the study that the use of sea safety measures was not very popular among the fishermen operating mecahnlsed and non- mechanised crafts and they relied mostly on their own wisdom and skill in saving their lives. Some kind of negligence is also seen on the part of the boat owners who often hire labour for fishing operations. The most urgent need, besides enforcing legal regulations is to educate fishermen regarding the use of safety measures. Training and other methods of intervention may be used to tell them about measures that could be adopted for msmagement of crisis including the use of first- aid. They should be made aware of the need to Invest their efforts In taking precautions to reduce the danger they face In their vocation.
