Media attention to, and government action in the UK, EU, US and Thailand, has accelerated investigation of human trafficking and slave labor. All the while, the growth of sustainability standards and certification (or its equivalent, independent monitoring and process improvement) has opened markets and facilitated the global trade of safe, quality and sustainable seafood. Industry and government have collaborated at an unprecedented rate, and more companies are sharing best practices and increasing the transparency of their supply chains to more savvy and vocal customers.
Progress in defining and improving the production of sustainable seafood requires diplomacy, collaboration, accountability and ongoing performance monitoring. These efforts will not only reduce risk within the seafood supply chain, but also benefit its stakeholders from farm and fisher folk to the end consumer.
