Assessment of ethical issues in seafood supply chains

In March 2015 Seafish commissioned a study to assess the ethical issues impacting on seafood species landed into, and imported to the UK.

This resulted in a comprehensive description and analysis of ethical concerns pervading seafood production and processing activities in a wide range of countries or regions that supply the UK seafood market, as well as domestic landings; wild caught and farmed species; different sectors of the supply chain; and all aspects of unethical practice. The outputs from this project include a fully referenced literature review, 15 risk mapping regional profiles highlighting countries to watch, and an analytical report with strategic recommendations.

Significance for seafood businesses: 

This is an overview of ethical risks that could affect seafood landed in, or imported into, the UK. This will help buyers make an informed judgement on the risks they face when sourcing seafood.
