This meeting will look at responsible recruitment in the seafood sector and how to ensure the remediation of worker-paid recruitment fees.

With long and complex seafood supply chains, and diverse labour supply models, it can be difficult to map and monitor recruitment models, and ensure due diligence is being observed. 

Our forthcoming Seafood Ethics Common Language Group (SECLG) meeting, will look at the responsible recruitment of local and migrant workers, changes to migration patterns and recruitment practices, and how to ensure the remediation of worker-paid recruitment fees.

Seafood Issues Groups

The SECLG is one of a number of Seafish-facilitated discussion groups, which focus on the integrity of the seafood supply chain. These groups provide a discussion platform for some of the most important issues facing the seafood industry, particularly in relation to the responsible sourcing of seafood. They are an opportunity for all those involved in the seafood supply chain to reach a consensus on common issues.
