Taiwan is inventing life vests suitable for fishermen and hopes to have them by year end. That was the word from Fisheries Agency’s Director-General Chang Chih-sheng in an RTI interview on Monday.
Chang said the current life vests are bulky and interfere with fishermen’s mobility at work so they often choose not to wear them at sea. In recent years, several fishermen have lost their lives when they fell overboard with no vests on. [FULL STORY]
