On Friday 7 February at about 7.45 pm, a crew member on board Asbjørn Selsbane became trapped between a trawl board and the railing. The boat was fishing in the seas off Træna when the accident occurred. The person was soon confirmed dead by the crew.

The accident happened while rigging the fishing gear when the vessel was actively fishing/trawling.

AIBN was present when the vessel arrived in Bodø on 8 February, and will follow up by sending representatives to the vessel's homeport Tromsø, in order to carry out interviews and collect relevant information.
