Vessel Safety And Management

Safety and the protection of the environment are the top priorities when it comes to vessel management at Baffin Fisheries. The Company owns and operates three fishing vessels, including two large factory-freezer multi species trawlers (MV Sivulliq & MV Inuksuk I) and one factory freezer, fixed-gear vessels (MV Arluk II). Baffin Fisheries complies with all safe and responsible vessel operating requirements. We practice sound waste management in all aspects of harvesting operations, with particular emphasis on the acceptable disposal of waste. We ensure that all waste is kept on board the vessel(s) and disposed of at an approved land facility during each vessel offload. We also provide appropriate training for all crew members with respect to vessel safety and responsible and sustainable fish harvesting.
