As everyone knows, fishing is a dangerous business. Our organization is committed to making sure that fishermen not only have access to the resources they need to keep their businesses running, but that they also have the skills required to keep themselves safe while they do so. To that end, we worked with the Fishing Partnership Support Services to bring their Safety and Survival Training Workshop to the island for the first time. The safety workshop was attended by over 40 fishermen and community members--all of whom braved the frigid waters of April and all of whom now have at-sea survival skills and certifications.
