Purse Seiner Survey

(NIOSH/CDC, 1997-2000) The objectives of this cross-sectional questionnaire study were to: estimate the frequency of injuries among Washington state purse seiners; identify major injury patterns among seiners; characterize the most hazardous tasks and potential methods for intervention among the purse seiner fleet.

Self-reporting and self-mailing questionnaires were distributed to the purse seiner fleet during the fishing season in southeast Alaska. The vast majority of these boats are owned and operated by Washington state residents.
