Oilseeds from a variety of plants, are normally crushed mechanically or treated by a solvent process to remove valuable oils, and include: sunflowerseed; rapeseed; mustardseed; linseed; and lupinseed. Seeds in bulk form are a dangerous cargo, being particularly prone to shifting at sea. It is also possible to ‘drown’ in a hold of such a commodity. For these reasons, adequate securing of seed cargoes in non self-trimming vessels is vital, whilst seamen and shore labour must exercise extreme caution when engaged in associated cargo work.
