Social issues in fisheries are complex and varied, ranging from ethical treatment of workers and suppliers, to advancing co-management, gender equity, and healthy communities. We promote socially responsible seafood production by helping our partners and seafood companies understand the problems and find solutions.
Empowering partners to address risks
We help our partners understand the risks of labor abuse and other social challenges in seafood supply chains, including legal liabilities and supply chain disruptions, and offer guidance and recommendations for addressing these issues.
Our Seafood Metrics system includes a Human Rights Risk Index, to help companies understand the risks in their source fisheries. This information is also used to highlight key risks within Target 75 and Supply Chain Roundtable priority fisheries.
We have compiled the following list of resources to help companies learn more about these issues and identify organizations and tools that can help you understand and address the risks of labor and social issues in your supply chain.
It should be noted that this list is not exhaustive, and there may be additional resources in other languages or otherwise more suited for a given situation. Inclusion in the list above does not constitute an endorsement by SFP, and SFP is not responsible for information contained on a linked website or transmissions users receive from linked websites.
