Abstract
Commercial fishing, despite many years of effort to make it safer, and some major regional successes in mitigation, remains a very hazardous type of work. Much more nuanced than the view provided by the current glare of electronic media, this special issue of the Journal of Agromedicine presents a collection of articles on the varied hazards of commercial fishing in the United States, as well as three articles on the rapidly expanding seafood fanning industry. The scope of subjects from machinery to culture, and geography from Alaska to the southeastern US describes a complex landscape of human effort to better understand, in order to make this time-honored work safer.
