Slavery? Poor working conditions? Results of the straw poll on fishing boat working hours.

Catching a few zeds before hauling again.



After this was a quote used by the Guardian newspaper in a year-long investigation to illustrate what appeared to be horrendous working conditions aboard Irish fishing vessels a straw poll was conducted on Through the Gaps...


The survey was live for seven days.


Full-time fishermen were asked if they had ever worked more than 48 hours without sleep - even if this is not the norm, the percentage of fishermen who have worked for periods of over 48 hours without sleep would still appear to be significant with more than 50% having done so more than a few times - that's fishing -jet lag ;-)sometimes you just have to get the job done.
