Commercial Fishing Industry Vessel Safety Act of 1988 (CFIVSA) ([dagger]) with at-sea boardings, during which officers check for illegal fishing activities, illicit drugs, and safety violations.
CFIVSA requirements for life rafts and immersion suits likely contributed to a survival rate of 94% among commercial fishermen aboard vessels that sank or capsized during 1997-1999 in Alaska; this rate was up from 73% in 1991 (2).
