This glossary deals with fishing vessels and safety on board. Apart from including terminology relevant to the various types of fishing vessels, it considers passive safety (vessel parts and structures, installations on board, stability requirements) and active safety (signals, lifesaving equipment, etc.). The glossary uses as its source of terminology the text of the `International Convention on Fishing Vessels and Safety on Board' (Torremolinos, 1977), and has been systematically expanded with the help of European experts. It follows the publication in 1987 of a glossary on fishing gear, comprising 377 terms in nine languages (Spanish, Danish, German, Greek, English, French, Italian, Dutch and Portuguese) and accompanied by definitions and illustrations. The terminology represented is highly specialised. In order to guarantee maximum reliability, assistance was obtained from prominent national experts.
