EJF’s ten principles for global transparency in the fishing industry. November 2018. The EJF Charter for Transparency was launched in November 2018, a commitment to ensure seafood supply chains are free from illegal fishing and human rights abuse. The charter includes detailed recommendations retailers can use with suppliers to make sure no boat associated with illegal or unethical practices taints their supply chain. The recommendations include the use of traceability systems that allow fish to be tracked from net to plate, accompanied by necessary evidence showing it was caught legally and ethically, and backed by third-party audits. The charter calls on them to support the adoption of EJF’s ten principles for global transparency in the fishing industry.

EJF has produced numerous reports and videos. See the links below.
