Areas where fish farms are located and are not usually far from the
shore pose a risk to maritime safety. In this regard, the issue has two
important aspects: first, navigational hazards on the approach to and proximity
to fish farms, such as rocky, shallow, narrow passages, areas with intensive
local traffic that are challenging the safety of navigation; the second is the
need for a pilot and tugboat (s) for docking or undocking manoeuvres to fish
farms with a berth. The offshore aquaculture has made a great leap forward
since 2007, but with this development, important issues such as ecosystem
conservation, sustainability of seafood, preventing marine transportation
related accidents and due measures which should be put into effect gained
importance as well. The cultured fish which harvested from cages usually being transported
to the processing facilities and customs control locations by vessels. The maritime
accidents that may occur during this transportation period have the capacity to
harm both the farms and the the ecosystem significantly. As a method for this
article, the safety needs of the vessels serving to the fish farms in the cargo
transfers are determined, and after this determination, conclusions on how this
need can be resolved by use of pilotage and towage services are put forward.
