Following requests from fishermen, Seafish have created a ‘critical worker certificate’ that they can, on request, issue to vessel owners, skippers and fishermen to use when travelling to and from work.
They can issue these certificates to any individual who has completed their mandatory training, and are therefore in our training database.
To request a certificate
Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01472 252302 with the following information:
Date of birth
Vessel registration number (PLN)
Vessel location (port of operation)
There is no legal requirement for these certificates to be carried. We are creating them in response to requests from fishermen in order to provide them with a piece of documentation which - if required - can help them to demonstrate that they are a critical worker making a necessary journey.
