For all seismic surveys on the Norwegian shelf, it is required to have at least one fishery expert on board. The fishery expert must have completed a three-day course under the auspices of the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate and the Directorate of Fisheries.
The fishery expert plays a very important role as adviser to the management on the seismic vessels. The fishery expert shall contribute to creating understanding between the industries, as well as contribute to good coexistence at sea. He/she must act objectively towards the players.
Those who want to be a fishery expert must complete a course. The objective of the course is to increase competence about the regulations, conflict management, reporting, notification and organisation. The course will also include an introduction to survey activities. Participants’ English skills will also be tested.
Requirements for course participants are pursuant to Section 11 of the Resource Management Regulations:
