The safety of fishermen and people in small boats is a
continuing concern in terms of safety at sea. In the course of your
voyages you encounter many types of fishing operations from dug out
canoes, with sometimes a candle or oil lantern, to large
fishing/factory ships. In and around the Australian coast fishing
vessels tend to be less than 20 m in length with a crew of two or
three. They often exhibit very bright working lights, though these
should be shielded in order to ensure that the fishing lights
required by the Colregs can be seen clearly.
