An air and sea search is underway for a fishing trawler and its three crew a week after it failed to dock at Hervey Bay in Queensland's south.

The trawler departed Urangan, Hervey Bay on November 11 with a 60 year-old experienced male skipper, a 24-year-old man and a 38-year-old man aboard. It was due to return on November 18.

Police say it is not unusual for the crew members not to return on time but after a week, and since communications with vessel ceased a day after it departed, a search was instigated.
