How to make the most of TESS

Tools for Ethical Seafood Sourcing (TESS) points you to a whole host of useful (and free) resources which can help businesses address social responsibility challenges in their supply chains.

For each step, there is an explanation of the specific action to take and you can view all the featured resources (presented as interactive records) which are linked to that step in the cycle, and which could ultimately be useful to seafood businesses in tackling social issues in seafood supply chains).

All the information is publicly available on external websites, so you are taken to the source of the information.

Tips on searching

In the ‘search our database’ section there are two main ways to search for information.

Typing a search term or phrase and then use one of the three search filters to further refine your search. Or

  • Just using one of the three search filters to find records that are ‘tagged’ with certain descriptors. For example you can just look at records relating to a particular location, type of resource or seafood sector, without having to fill in the search term.
  • A search will generate a summary list of associated records. If you are interested to find out more about a record, then select ‘view record’. This will take you to further information including a detailed summary, an indication of usefulness for seafood businesses and a link to the external website for more detailed information.
