This study is aimed to utilize a basic data for setting up an allowable air noise with IMO standard in accommodation and working areas of 24m longer fishing vessels. The air noise in accommodation and working areas of 300 tons class squid-jigger were evaluated and the levels were compared to the allowable levels of IMO. The results indicated that the maximum range of noise levels was estimated to be between 54.8dB (A) and 83.2dB, and the correlation between the distance from the main engine to measuring point and the maximum noise level of each point was shown to be y=-13.8log (r)+92.91 ($r^2=0.821$). In addition, except the case of making an accommodation area near to the engine room in 24m longer jigging vessels, it was evaluated that the accommodation noise regulation of 1,600 tons international voyage vessels with 60dB (A) or an improved noise level with 65dB (A) could be properly applied.
