What Is Commercial Fishing Insurance?

Commercial Fishing Insurance is a specialist business insurance package curated to address risks associated with catching fish and other seafood for commercial profit. With appropriate Commercial Fishing Insurance you can focus on running your business.

No matter what type of business you operate, the brokers at iWest will be able to find the appropriate cover for you. Some types of insurance are mandatory for Australian businesses, while other covers are optional.

What Are The Risks Associated With Commercial Fishing Insurance?

Commercial Fishing businesses face unique risks compared with other businesses. At iWest we have experience providing comprehensive cover for fisheries. Given the stringent laws surrounding fishing and licenses, and the dangers associated with fishing, you need to be covered for any financial risks that may impact your business.

Our iWest Insurance Brokers are able to find an insurance solution that is more than symbolic and will cover you for risks relevant to your individual circumstances as Commercial Fishing business.

Some of the risks associated with running a Commercial Fishing business may include:

  • If your boat is damaged during stormy weather, or for other reasons, repairs could have a massive financial impact on your business. Commercial Fishing insurance may cover you in case of damage.
  • If your employees are hurt on the job, you need to be covered in case of personal accident or injury. Commercial Fishing Insurance may cover your employees or cover legal costs and any compensation you pay out.
  • Public Liability is required of all Commercial Fisheries. Luckily with iWest’s Commercial Fishing Insurance a comprehensive Public Liability policy is built into your package.

It is possible to reduce some of these risks through proper risk management; however, it’s important to have a comprehensive insurance policy that fully protects business, your employees and the general public.
