Fishing Forward podcast episode

In our latest podcast episode, we invite the Fishing Forward podcast team to share important research that can help improve the safety and health for commercial fishermen and their families. The Fishing Forward team brings stories of fishermen to the community.

Fishing Forward is a podcast inspired by fishermen, for fishermen. Fishing Forward focuses on the well-being of the commercial fishing industry and is funded by the Northeast Center for Occupational Health and Safety and produced by the team at Coastal Routes Radio at the University of Guelph.
