What is Fishery Insurance?

Fishery insurance can be divided into four main categories: asset risks, production and management risks, market risks, and personal and/or health risks.

Asset Risks

Asset risks include loss and/or damage to equipment, gear and any other fishing machinery.

Production and Management Risks

Production and management risks include the loss of catch, fish disease, or other factors that lead to production failure.

Market Risks

Market risks include the changes in prices (for outputs and inputs) as well as increases in interest rates.

Personal and Health Risks

Personal and health risks cover the most important part of your fishery – your people. This includes job related injuries and illnesses.

Do I Need Insurance for My Fishery?

The needs of a particular fishery can’t be met with a one-size-fits-all solution. However, there are some baseline benefits to continuously having fishery insurance. Fishery Insurance allows you to protect your fish farmers against accidents and protect your business from financial loss. Other benefits include:

  • Protection against unavoidable natural hazards
  • Reducing the risk for the financial institutions that are in charge of your fishery’s credit
  • Reducing the need to rely on the government for assistance after a natural disaster
