The present Glossary is mainly dealing with fishing vessels and it also deals with all issues relating to the safety on board. It includes terminology on so many types of fishing vessels and considers passive ship safety (i.e. parts and structures of the vessel, different installations on board the ship, requirements related to the ship stability etc.) and active ship safety (i.e. lifesaving appliances, signaling equipment, pyrotechnics etc.). The content of this dictionary was prepared with so valuable input from the leading European experts in the subject field. It shall be noted that the terms included by the authors in the book are highly specialized and therefore quite difficult to find elsewhere. The team of authors has also sought assistance from many prominent national experts, in order to provide maximum possible reliability. Though most of the marine glossaries can only provide approximate translations of the specialized terms, in this publication the accent is made on the clarity of the translation. As a result, this book is one of the best available sources of technical terms related to the fishing vessels. It is indeed popular and may be recommended to anyone whose day-to-day work requires clear understanding and knowledge of such terms.
