Journal of Agromedicine Publishes IFISH 5 Special Issue on Health and Safety in the Fishing, Aquaculture, and Seafood Processing Industries

The Journal of Agromedicine in collaboration with the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) recently published a special issue dedicated to papers presented at and inspired by The Fifth International Fishing Industry Safety and Health Conference (IFISH 5). The special issue continues the discussion started at IFISH 5 on fisheries management policy effect on health and safety, the state of the science in aquaculture, the health effects of bioaerosols in seafood processing, and many other practical and relevant solutions for improving safety and health in these high-risk industries. Papers cover original research, literature reviews, and session summaries in all three focus areas from authors across the globe. As editor of the special issue, Jennifer M. Lincoln, Co-Director of the NIOSH Center for Maritime Safety and Health Studies contributed an editorial on the importance of IFISH and future directions for the conference.

You can read the special issue on the Journal of Agromedicine’s website (Volume 24, Issue 4).
