Purpose of the Seafood Ethics Common Language Group
We facilitate and provide the secretariat for the international group which includes retailers, foodservice, processors, environmental non-governmental organisations, development organisations and charities, and the catching sector.
The aim of the group is to establish a common understanding of ethical issues within the seafood industry, communicate measures taken to address them, and agree a clear agenda for future action.

Social responsibility is a key work area for Seafish. As well as faciliating the SECLG, at Seafish we’re also working separately on a number of key areas to address this issue including: Outreach activities, the Risk Assessment for Sourcing Seafood (RASS) and the Responsible Fishing Scheme (RFS). Our fact sheet provides a summary of this work.
