Successful fishing operations rely on appropriate boat design and construction.

FAO Fisheries Department Events - Highlights: "25 May 2005 -- Successful fishing operations rely on appropriate boat design and construction. For this, the FAO Fisheries Department's paper Fishing boat designs: 2 V-bottom boats of planked and plywood construction is proving to be a popular and recognized reference - it is presently the most downloaded document on the entire FAO Web site (and has been for the last 12 months!). The publication includes designs for 4 small wooden fishing vessels (5.2 to 8.5 metres), comprehensive material specifications and lists, and provides very complete building instructions. In Africa, Asia and the Pacific, probably more than 90% of small fishing vessels are built of wood. And with much of the current tsunami rehabilitation efforts focussing on boat reconstruction in order to help the hard-hit fisheries sector rebound, this publication is likely to remain in demand.
