About Yrkesfisker.no

Yrkesfisker.no is the result of a collaboration between the Norwegian Maritime Authority and a number of fisheries-related partners.

On these pages you will find important information relating to regulations, checklists, accident prevention on board and other important safety-related information.

The purpose of gathering this information for you as a commercial fisherman is to make it easier to access the rules that apply and the information that will be useful in the effort to make the workday on board safer.

The web page was launched on the 17th of August 2010 and given a major overhaul to a new version in April 2015. The Norwegian Maritime Authority is responsible for the content of the pages.

The collaborative partners in this project besides NMA are: The Directorate of FisheriesSintefThe Norwegian Coastal Fisherman AssociationThe Norwegian Fisherman AssociationNorwegian Seafarer's UnionCefor and Bud og Hustad insurance.
