Jan. 20: Government Investing in Commercial Fishing Safety Program


The federal government is investing $262,000 in Fish SAFE, a BC program that works to improve safety onboard commercial fishing vessels. This funding will help Fish SAFE expand its boating safety programs to remote communities where upstream terminal area fisheries are located. It’ll give commercial fishing enterprises the tools and assistance they need to develop fishing safety programs in their communities, including a training needs assessment and delivery of fishing safety education and training programs.
