The Norwegian Maritime Authority gathers data on all accidents at sea involving Norwegian fishing vessels and foreign fishing vessels in Norwegian waters.
All work-related personell accidents are also registered. Personell accidents are defined as any incident resulting in physical harm to a person on board which does not do damage to the vessel.
