Saw that yesterday , not good looking like a 4-5000 fine just for the boarding ladder being unsafe let alone any fine for the Fishery Officer falling into the sea ( and if there are any problems with the nets or fish declared in the log books !! )

Exactly the same happened to a norwegian trawler in 2006.
Skipper got fined 10000N.kr for not having a correct log book.
The court ment the skipper could`nt be blamed for the broken ladder, so
he was`nt punished for that.:D

hello guys
i was fined for this in 94 5000 norwegian but at the same time we have to remember these guys are boarding ships everyday up north bear island svalbard ect ect gets as cold as -30 so they expect at least a decent ladder
