Karen Green

There is a fundamental requisite to monitor the welfare of the fishing crews working on UK vessels in UK waters, as well as globally. This document highlights the key UK and global legislation that is helping now, or will help in the future, to ensure fishers have minimum standards and decent conditions of work on board fishing vessels. It also details: the health and safety requirements for all those working on UK fishing vessels; the voluntary initiatives in place to help improve the conditions on board fishing vessels for all commercial fishers; the international guidelines that support basic human and labour rights principles across the whole fisheries sector; and the appropriate authorities, organisations and charities who are working to support the industry, and improve governance, safety and welfare within UK fishing. This document updates the December 2014 document entitled 'The legal framework for working on UK fishing vessels' and the October 2016 document 'Working on UK fishing vessels: the legal framework and support for fishers.

Fact Sheet: Seafish role in addressing ethics in seafood. September 2017

Karen Green

Social responsibility is paramount to Seafish and to the entire seafood industry. For us social responsibility, encompasses concerns about labour and human rights issues. This includes human trafficking, labour abuses, child labour, bonded labour, forced labour, migrant workers, and slavery, across the whole supply chain. Social responsibility is a complex, global issue affecting many countries and a wide range of products. This fact sheet highlights the key work areas for Seafish to address this issue including: outreach activities; the Seafood Ethics Common Language Group; a project to assess ethical issues in the UK supply chain; the development of a risk assessment tool for social responsibility in fisheries; the development of Tools for Ethical Seafood Sourcing (TESS) to signpost businesses to resources that can support them in addressing ethical issues in their supply chain; the Risk Assessment for Sourcing Seafood (RASS) and the Responsible Fishing Scheme (RFS). This is the fifth revision of this fact sheet.
