The RESCUES manual is a major development in efforts to assist and support members of the fishing industry. It provides an all-inclusive blueprint on preparing for a crisis in a fishing community, such as the sinking of a boat or the search for a fisherman lost at sea, and on supporting fishing families during and after a crisis.
