Table 1 At-sea LSS risk assessment parameterization to assess transparency and legal compliance of vessels.
Risk factor 1: Vessel ownership and home portRisk factor 2: Vessel registration and flagRisk factor 3: Sea-going crew

sea on the catching vessels?

vessels that are greater than 100 GRT?
For at-sea crew transfers, what documentation is
maintained on the vessels?

vessels that are less than 100 GRT?
What are the procedures that are routinely used to pay
the crew for their sea duty?

CV?
What is the history of flags for the CV?Are the tasks/duties of the crew individuals at sea

vessel(s)?

process of certification?
