The UK seafood industry offers a wide variety of careers for people from all backgrounds.

Seagoing training

At Seafish, we co-ordinate training for commercial fishermen working on UK-registered fishing vessels. Funding is currently available to all commercial fishermen (who are fully compliant with Basic Safety Training Regulations) to attend a wide range of safety courses; from refresher training, to more advanced courses such as stability, navigation and radio operations. All applications for funding must be approved by Seafish in advance of training being undertaken. For more information on courses eligible for funding contact the Seafish Fishermen`s Safety Training Team on 01472 252302.
