Mr. Dave Cotton

The Standing Committee on Fishing Vessel Safety would like to acknowledge the outstanding work done by Mr. Dave Cotton in promoting the development of a culture of safety in the fishing industry.


Daniel Lefebvre, Dave Cotton and Robert Fecteau

As a professional fisherman, Mr. Cotton has helped improve safety at sea by raising awareness within the Québec fishing community of the importance of adopting responsible behaviours, in no small part thanks to his best practices in safety management. In addition, as a teacher, he both passionately and effectively communicates his professional enthusiasm and concern for safe navigational and operational practices.
