Our people
Meet our driving force

Our people are what make us who we are. Their dedication, motivation and industry-leading expertise are our most valuable asset in our continued efforts to work smarter, safer and more sustainably. No matter whether they are on deck, in the wheelhouse or in the boardroom, every member of the team shares the same vision.

You're only as good as your crew

Over the several decades that we have fished the Southern Ocean, we have built a team of exceptionally qualified officers and an experienced crew.

This is most noticeable in our outstanding safety record, leading approach to sustainability and important contributions to scientific research in this time.

Putting crew welfare first

We don’t just go the extra mile to protect our catch – we also do all we can to ensure our crew have the safest possible working conditions.

Thanks to innovative labour-saving baiting and setting techniques, we can operate with a smaller crew. This means we can provide the highest standards of crew accommodation, provisions and working apparel. All crew members are also fully insured for medical attention and medivac repatriation – while our medically trained bridge officers have 24/7 access to international medical assistance by phone in case our crew need treatment from the dedicated on-ship hospital while at sea.

Crew welfare is paramount. Which is why we rest our crew members for 1 to 4 months between trips to ensure they are fully recuperated and fit for operations. We also have a robust company anti-slavery and child exploitation policy to enshrine basic rights across the fleet.
