- Safety Systems
Once again I begin by saying "I hope you are safe and well"? I want to thank you all for your ongoing support and the number of enquiries we have received. With regards to training, we are still not permitted to run courses (this is as equally frustrating for us as it is for you). I can assure you we have not forgotten about you, keep checking facebook and your emails - as soon as restrictions ease and allow us to restart training I will be in touch. In the meantime, please continue to get in touch if there is any further help or information you need.
BOTH IAN AND I HOPE TO SEE YOU IN THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE -
TAKE CARE! 👍🙂 ... See MoreSee Less

WARNING WARNING WARNING
We have just had a phone call from the MCA relating to the compulsory wearing of a PFD or Life Jacket on a fishing vessel. This is something that we have been heavily promoting during our Seafish training courses as has been the below warning that it would happen.
The MCA are now actively using UAVs to fly over and photograph fishing vessels at sea. The photographs taken are extremely high quality and legally admissible in court. If the photograph taken shows that there is no obvious us of PFDs or Life Jackets (or other man over board prevention in place) being worn by crew on deck, enforcement notices ARE NOW being sent out from the Head of Enforcement in MCA Southampton. You will be asked to prove (with evidence) what acceptable PFD or Life Jacket was being worn (or other man over board prevention in place) by the crew in the photograph. This may also involve a physical inspection of the vessel and equipment if required by the MCA. If it cannot be proven that acceptable PFDs or Life Jackets were being worn, enforcement action will follow.
Enforcement letters have already started being sent out in Wales.
PLEASE NOTE, belt worn, inflatable or otherwise buoyant devices are NOT accepted as adequate.
There is now a ZERO tolerance with regard to fishing vessel safety by the MCA including PFD/Life Jacket wearing, training etc.
Don't get caught out by this. The MCA requires that, unless measures are in place which eliminate the risk of fishermen falling overboard, all fishermen must be provided with and must wear PFDs or safety harnesses. The measures preventing Man Overboard
must be documented in a written risk assessment.
Further information in MGN 588(F) - COMPULSORY PROVISION AND WEARING OF PERSONAL FLOTATION DEVICES ON FISHING
PLEASE SHARE THIS POST so we can get the message out to all our fishing community to save lives and protect from enforcement action. ... See MoreSee Less

This a joke?... use drones to patrol sky's? How much this cost? And they can't think of the sensible option?. Go back too the small pfd with out the epirb inside. ( as it's ridiculous..) like crystal maze turning it on....like being in the sea isn't enough......get us wrist watch epirb that when a mayday from said vessel is active it initiates the watches....... Will save time and lives.

All safety gear should be cheaper it is ridiculous the price
Bloody hell!!! How much has that cost the tax payers for the MCA to have a toy like that!!!! Bloody joke
Thank you for the heads up ☝️😁
Hope your doing all the EU boat's not just harassing UK fishermen.
Does this apply to customers on Recreational charter boat fishing trips.
Is just commercial fishing industry regs or does include pleasure fishermen...
Dose this include recreational fishing or is it commercial only
hope you all covered !! x
I'm all for safety but this is just another intrusion on civil rights, big brother is watching.
MORE BIG BROTHER WE ARE NOT FREE TO LIVE ANYMORE
Asif things arnt bad enough and imagine what it costs and will end up costing us fellow fisherman
07720268810 - this is the new number for training enquiries. Please use this number as Ian will direct you to it if you contact him with any training questions. Sorry for any inconvenience, I'm just trying to share some of the workload and get to know you all. I know some of you also have my other number but that is my personal phone and I do not work everyday. However, I do promise to return any missed calls and messages within 24 hours where possible. Thank you everyone, you have been, and continue to be a great support, Bethan. 👍🙂☎️ ... See MoreSee Less

Is there anymore dates for the skippers courses yet
I’ll get the Seafish website updated for you, do you want this to be the only number listed?
2021... keep your eyes peeled 👀 over the next week or 2 there will be a new phone number and email address being posted for TRAINING enquiries only. You can still contact Ian but he will point you in my direction (sorry guys, I'm not quite as talkative as him 🤣). Although I only work part time, I will pick up emails and calls on a regular basis. This will also help me get to know the voices, and sometimes faces, behind the names. Thanks all, Bethan. ... See MoreSee Less
