Greenpeace is working in alliance with human rights, labour and environmental groups to ensure that seafood is caught, farmed and processed in ways that are not harmful to the environment or to workers.

The focus has been on tuna fisheries, but it has been necessary to address other fisheries and aquaculture operations as well. Greenpeace works closely with governments and corporations, seeking to collaborate when possible on achieving regulatory reform as well as private sector commitments.

Significance for seafood businesses: Not seafood-specific, but do work in this sector with a focus on tuna fisheries and Asia. Useful for awareness as an organisation working to support the industry, and improve governance, safety and welfare within the global seafood industry.
