Mental Health in Fishing Industry Survey

Mental Health in Fishing Industry Survey


You are invited to take part in a research study looking to understand mental health in the commercial fishing industry. 


This research is funded by the University of Exeter and the Seafarers’ Charity and hopes to understand the state of mental health in the fishing industry and the current stressors facing fishermen. This information will help the project to make recommendations to government and other organisations about how to support coastal communities.


This survey is for ALL commercial fishermen in England, not just those with mental health concerns. We would like you to take part if you are happy and healthy and/or if you have mental health concerns. If you participate in this survey there is the option to be entered into a prize draw for £200. Please see the attached poster for more information.
