Fishing Vessel

A fishing vessel is a type of ship used for catching fish in the sea or freshwater. These vessels range in size from small boats with a crew of one or two people to large factory ships with a crew of hundreds.

The length of fishing vessels can vary from around 20 meters to over 100 meters, depending on the type of fishing and the size of the catch. The speed of these vessels is typically between 10 and 20 knots, but can be higher on larger vessels.

The cargo capacity of fishing vessels varies depending on the type of fish being caught and the fishing method used. Some vessels are designed to catch and process fish on board, while others are simply designed to store fish until they can be offloaded at port.

The maximum draft of fishing vessels is typically around 6 meters, but this can vary depending on the size and type of vessel. The DWT (deadweight tonnage) of fishing vessels can range from a few hundred to several thousand tons.

Some of the major shipyards that build fishing vessels include Astilleros Gondan in Spain, Cemre Shipyard in Turkey, and Dongara Marine in Australia. Countries that are major producers of fishing vessels include Norway, Japan, China, and South Korea.

As of 2021, there are estimated to be around 4.6 million fishing vessels in the world, with the majority being small-scale vessels operated by artisanal fishers.
