Email Karen Green to register for this event
This meeting will provide a forum for presentations and broad discussion on recruitment risks and access to labour for the seafood sector.

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.

This Seafood Ethics Common Language Group bite-size meeting will revisit the topic of responsible recruitment. This will cover the recruitment of local and migrant workers, changes to migration patterns and recruitment practices, and how to ensure the remediation of worker-paid recruitment fees.

Through a series of short presentations we will look broadly at current recruitment risks, the shortage of labour and access to workers, and new initiatives to support responsible recruitment in the seafood sector globally.
