Our employees are working at sea or on shore. Especially in the fishing operations the working conditions are challenging as the weather conditions can be tough, various nationalities are coming together - we employ people from more than 15 countries - and the working routine is six weeks at sea, six weeks home. We therefore take good care of our crew. 

We train them well and pay a lot of attention to good facilities and accommodation on board, state-of-the-art equipment, healthy food, internet access and on some vessels fitness equipment.  Safety is number one priority, we work with strict protocols and train our crew well.
