Safety Surveillance for PNW Commercial Fishing: Risk Information System for Commercial (RISC) Fishing
Commercial fishing is vital to Northwest economies and communities. Compared to other industries, it is one of the most hazardous due to higher rates of serious injuries and deaths. Yet, data on commercial fishing injuries have not been systematically collected or analyzed. This project is working to develop the RISC Fishing surveillance system, a new analytical system for merging multiple vessels and personal databases of fatal and non-fatal information.
