A one-year retrospective study among Danish commercial fishermen revealed that the overall rate of injury was 20.4 per 100 persons per year.
There were no significant differences in injury rates related to age.
The overall rates of injury related to the different types of vessels - trawlers, gill-netters and Danish seiners - did differ statistically when the number of man-days at sea was taken into account.
There was, however, a significant increase in the number of injuries on trawlers over 100 gross register tons.
The overall number of days lost due to injury among all fishermen was 47 days per 1,000 days at sea.
The highest number of days lost for work was on trawlers of 100-199 gross register tonnage.
Preventive measures should be implemented in all age groups and in all the main types of fishing vessels.
