Fact Sheet: Seafish activities in relation to the Landing Obligation. December 2017

Karen Green

Under the revised Common Fisheries Policy a Landing Obligation (LO) is being introduced gradually, between 2015 and 2019 for all commercial fisheries (species under TACs, or under minimum sizes) in European waters. Seafish’s work on the LO is diverse and cuts across a number of work streams. We are providing valuable services to industry and government and our coordination role in communicating about ongoing projects is limiting duplication of work. This paper summarises our recent, current and future activities. These activities have been agreed by Seafish’s three Sector Panels and demonstrate a commitment to help industry meet the challenges of the LO. Key work areas for Seafish are: economic implications; gear selectivity; the Seafish Discard Action Group; briefings and guidance; outreach; a project to assess the impact of the LO on the UK supply chain; sectoral support; and marketing and communications.

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.
