Share Fishing Agreement

As a new guy, I signed a 65-day contract. Other companies offer different types, for example. B for 90 days, or even one for 30 days. If they are satisfied with you and your work, and if you are not too tired, they can offer you an extension. After 80 days as a newcomer, I needed a break, so I skipped two trips and then I got back on the boat. If you did not enter into your contract, the crew share of your last trip was halved and your flight from Seattle to Dutch Harbor was not covered (approximately $2000). In most cases, the new boys gave up after the first trip, leaving a debt of about $1,000. Even with that, almost half of the beginners gave up so early when I went there for the first time. The AAT decided that the crew members were not „employees“ of the common law or S 12 (3) of the SGAA, as the contract was not „entirely or primarily for the work“ of the crew members. While the joint enterprise agreement stipulated that crew members would contribute to the work, the AAT found that they were paid on the basis of a result (i.e. the number of fish caught). The reduction in fleet capacity is often cited as the negative result of catches, but such a reduction can be considered an explicit fishing objective.

[28] Fishing for participation may result in a greater capitalization of the fishing fleet if the capital required to acquire shares is included. [29] At the same time, speech-sharing programs can change into a change in the structure of employment, which transforms many part-time jobs paid as a portion of landing value into less full-time, wage-paid jobs. [23] [28] Due to capacity reductions and job changes, programs can reduce the number of fishermen. [28] Robert Greenwood, NFFO`s head of safety and training, said: „The right to be an equity fisherman is an important part of the British fishing industry and a historical privilege enjoyed by fishermen and shipowners. Is not used as part of a service contract. Worked in the fishing industry – is a captain or crew member of a British fishing vessel dressed by more than one person; or – Used to work on a British fishing boat, but is now too old or fragile and works ashore in the UK to manufacture and upgrade equipment or do other work for a British fishing vessel.

Commodore David Dickens RN CBE, Head of the Fishermen Mission, said: „This timely briefing provides urgent clarity for the assessment of fishermen`s rights in action, in light of the legislation on the work of the Fisheries Convention.
