Most Dangerous Jobs Trawlermen

About one of the most dangerous or life-threatening jobs trawlermen, information and dangers of the profession.


Trawlermen: Statistics for this hardy group of seafarers are sometimes difficult to collect, but in a recent careful study it was shown that the fatal accident rates for deep-sea fishermen are twice those for miners, five times those for construction workers, and twenty times those for men in manufacturing industries. Whole crews are often lost in heavy seas; individuals drown after being washed overboard; and poor protective clothing gives inadequate protection against hypothermia and is often actually antibuoyant. Several trawlers in northern waters have capsized from the weight of ice in the masts and rigging, with the loss of all hands--despite the ready availability of deicing equipment.
