Social auditing on fishing vessels is an area which has developed over the past number of years, in response to concerns around the labor practices, health, safety and welfare of employees in the fishing industry. In recent times, a number of seafood industry players worldwide have united to develop voluntary, independent and accredited third-party certification programs for labor practices on fishing vessels and are currently being adopted by industry. These standards were developed to assure seafood buyers that the fish they are buying and selling is harvested by crews that are: recruited and hired ethically; treated with respect on the vessel; paid properly; and have processes to address grievances.
The objective of this webinar is to provide participants with an opportunity to learn of the most recent developments in the area of standard development around labor practices in fishing vessels. It will also provide participants with up-to-date learnings from recent pilot assessments on social auditing on fishing vessels. Participants will have an opportunity to learn from two of the standard owners and SGS on this developing field.
Target Audience: This webinar is aimed at wild capture fishing vessels of all sizes globally
