'Iascairi' means fishermen in Irish. These men are tough and very hard working. Much of the time they sleep very little in their 24 hours work marathons. Today's law in Ireland for catching fish is different from many years ago. For various reasons (European Union Laws) Ireland has given some rights to catch fish to other countries such as Holland, Spain or UK.
Today on Irish coasts a trawler is allowed to catch only a certain quota of fish. however there are rumours of trawlers catching fish and transporting their cargo to smaller boats. Despite the efforts of Boards Iascaigh Mhara (BIM) in equipping the fishermen with strict safety measures and training in proper usage of equipment, life on the sea brings its own rules.
According to different surveyes from around the world, professional fishing is one of the most dangerous jobs with the highest rates of fatality.
