Classes prepare fishermen, scientists to survive at sea

Marine safety class in actionNewport, Ore. – A series of one- and two-day classes offered by Oregon Sea Grant aims to prepare fishermen, scientists and others whose work takes them to sea to survive the worst of what the watery environment can throw at them.

Organized by Sea Grant Extension’s Kaety Hildenbrand and taught by the U.S. Coast Guard, the remaining classes, coming up in May and June, are directed at marine scientists, graduate students, aquarium specimen collectors and others whose jobs take them to sea, but who likely have not had the formal training safety available to commercial fishermen.
