Criminalisation and piracy put pressure on seafares, BIMCO and ISF say

Twenty years after conducting their first manpower study in 1990, BIMCO and the International Shipping Federation are planning a 2010 update that they say will assess the global supply and demand for merchant seafarers. The study will cover two main areas: current worldwide supply and demand for seafarers and the likely future supply and demand balance of seafarers.

“Now more than ever, the current economic difficulties facing the industry, and the increasing pressures being placed on seafarers such as piracy and criminalisation, make it timely to conduct a survey to identify what needs to be put in place for the future to secure a healthy pool of seafarers in the short, medium and long term,” the two organisations stated.
