Industrial Fishing

Commercial FishingIndustrial fishing is the most dangerous and among the hardest of all jobs in the world. Equipment such as radars, sonars and echo sounders are used to locate shoals of crabs or fish often in the most extreme oceans. Whether it be fishing in tropical seas facing the dangers of cyclones and typhoons, or enduring freezing temperatures and drifting ice packs in polar regions.

Many ships use hydraulic cranes to set and retrieve pots or nets. For fishers on such ships, work is tedious & tiring and extremely hazardous. In addition to managing and repairing nets, they must sort and clean the catch.

On factory ships fish is processed and frozen onboard. In such cases, the catch is collected by support vessels which also bring fresh supplies allowing fishing vessels to stay at sea for months without fishers ever having a chance shore leave.
