Our Work


The protection of human rights is an integral part of the global sustainable seafood movement. Instances of human rights and labor rights abuses, such as human trafficking, forced labor, child labor, and limits on freedom of association have been documented in the production of seafood products sold by major North American and European retailers. In response to growing awareness of this issue, many companies with environmentally sustainable seafood sourcing policies are now expanding their commitments to include social responsibility efforts and a safe and healthy work environment for all workers in their supply chains.

FishWise works alongside our retail partners and a growing network of key experts and organizations to understand and improve human rights issues in seafood supply chains.
