Abstract A survey was conducted to establish the extent of fatigue in British fishermen. Problems accessing the target population limited the sample to 81 people, highlighting the difficulty of conducting research in this area. Whilst the results cannot be considered representative of the British fishing population, the fact that 60\% (n = 48) believed their personal safety had been at risk because of fatigue at work, 16\% (n = 13) had been involved in a fatigue related accident, and 44\% (n = 36) said they had worked to the point of exhaustion or collapse suggests a problem that requires further investigation.
