Deep Sea Fishing can be a very dangerous occupation, with those who make a living from the activity facing the possibility of injury or death each day.

Fisherman can fall overboard and drown. Many are lost at sea as a result of this accident. There is always the possibility of drowning whilst at sea, so ensure you wear a Life Jacket.

As well as this, a sudden change in the weather or an onset of bad weather can exponentially increase the danger of the trip.

Pay particular attention to any children you may be Fishing with and make sure they are not near the water unattended.

Before embarking on a Deep Sea Fishing holiday it is a good idea for each member of your group to receive CPR training from an organisation such as the St John's Ambulance.
