Very interesting. Pity it doesn’t give a breakdown of the various types of fishing. I know whitebaiting can result in fatalities particularly from being swept away at river mouths. Rock fishing is also very dangerous both from being washed away and from falls. The stats likely also include the loss of both commercial fishing boats and recreational craft. I have also witnessed some pretty horrible injuries from fish hooks over the years.
