Commercial fishing

All Jersey vessels that go to sea, catch fish, and wish to sell those fish must be registered with the shipping registrar as a fishing vessel.

Fishing vessels must be compliant with the requirements of the Shipping (Fishing vessel safety Provisions) (Jersey) Order 2004, and all persons employed on that vessel must have been trained in accordance with the Shipping (Fishing Vessel safety Training) (Jersey) Order 2004.

Vessels must also be aware of the other shipping legislation along with the requirements of the sea fisheries legislation, both of which can be found on the Jersey Legal Information Board website.

In addition all people going to sea should check the Jersey Coastguard section. ​
