    Sea safety guide
    A guide for small-scale fishers

    Fishing the vast Pacific Island waters, small-scale tuna fishers often venture beyond 20 miles of their village shores, to locations with strong oceanic currents, in craft that may not be fit for purpose and with too little in regard to knowledge of their engine or the necessary tools to repair an engine at sea. A craft that outperforms the seas when under power is often overpowered by the sea when the engine fails, with disastrous results and too often loss of life. A sea safety guide for small-scale fishers targets to capture the attention of average fishers to understand how dangerous each and every fishing trip is. And that it is only them that can improve their safety at sea. Simple yet very effective equipment can be easily stowed without conflict to their fishing operation, and should always be carried on every fishing trip. The guide also captures the attention of the boat owners or potential boat owners to understand the various aspects of construction and fit out of a boat, to ensure the boat will be fit for purpose, safer during most operational conditions and can be a reliable life raft for the crew in the advent of capsize or flooding of the boat. The guide is being translated in the languages of the seven FishFAD project countries and targets small-scale fishers with a pictorial guide that should prove easy to understand and relate to the relevance of their own craft within their own fishery.

    Between 1980 and 1985, the small-scale fisheries project of the Bay of Bengal Programme (BOBP) demonstrated fishing techniques with various types of highopening bottom trawls in Tamil Nadu and Orissa, in cooperation with the fisheries departments of these states. New deck equipment and machinery and simple trawl rigging accessories for standard Indian coastal trawlers were also locally developed, demonstrated and introduced. In Gujarat, training and experimental fishing in high-opening bott om trawling were conducted early 1983 by CIFNET (Central Institute of Fisheries Nautical and Engineering Training). BOBP provided technical and material support to the Cl FN ET effort. It was hoped that high-opening bottom trawls would help relieve fishing pressure on prawn resources, put idle prawn trawlers to gainful use during the off season and help tap underexploited food fish resources. The innovations with deck equipment and gear accessories were intended to make trawling effort safe r, more efficient and more comfortable. This paper summarizes the results of the high-opening bottom trawl demonstrations and the response to them in the three states. It also sums up the impact of trawling effort following BOBP demonstrations on fishery resources; and discusses the present status of gear designs and of deck equipment. Future prospects concerning high-opening bottom trawling are also discussed.

    Pivoting Engine Installation For Beachlanding Boats - BOBP/WP/44 1986
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This paper describes the efforts to develop an appropriate engine installation for boats designed and developed for fishermen in India and Sri Lanka operating from surf ridden beaches. These boats have to negotiate rough surf conditions for most part of the year with breaking waves up to two metres in height. The paper details the different types of pivoting engine installations tried out with air-cooled and water-cooled engines of different makes. The problems faced, the improvements made and the conclusions derived are set out. It also includes a detailed description of an installation. The detailed drawings are available with BOBP and may be obtained on request. The work on engine installations described in this paper was carried out by the small-scale fisheries project of the Bay of Bengal Programme (BOBP) as part of its beachcraft development project. It began in 1980. The first trials were conducted from a beach just outside Madras and were reported in BOBP/WP/7 “T echnical Trials of Beachcraft Prototypes in India.” The original concept of the pivoting engine box was conceived by 0. Gulbrandsen (Naval Architect Consultant) who also designed the first prototype. Further development described in this paper was done by the authors, assisted by BOBP Associate Professional Officers P.A. Hemminghyth (Marine Engineer) and SO. Johansen (Naval Architect), counterpart officers S.B. Sarma (Andhra Pradesh), E. Srinivasan (Tamil Nadu) and G. Patrick (Colombo). G. Gowing (Surf Crossing Consultant) from Australia also contributed several useful ideas. Trials were carried out in Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Orissa in India and Sri Lanka. Another BOBP document of direct relevance to the subject described in this paper is BOBP/WP/45 “Further Development of Beachlanding Craft in India and Sri Lanka.”
