Probably the most comprehensive dictionary of fishing vessel terminology ever written, this unique reference book for the fishing industry defines 1086 terms in nine languages - English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Portugese, Danish, Greek and Dutch - accompanied wherever possible with appropriate illustrations. The number of entries has been doubled in this second edition. In addition to dealing with the many different types of fishing vessels, safety is dealt with in detail, including vessel parts and structures, installations on board, stability requirements, signals and life-saving equipment. Since fishing terminology is highly specialised and very difficult to find elsewhere a team of prominent international experts has been involved in compiling the work in order to guarantee maximum reliability.
