Organisations Address Social Responsibility in the Fish Feed Sector

GLOBAL - The Global Aquaculture Alliance, IFFO, Lyons Seafoods Co. and Wm Morrison Supermarkets on 10 October collectively agreed to a position statement on the social concerns related to fish feed production.

The four organisations announced the agreement on the final day of the Global Aquaculture Alliance’s GOAL 2014 conference in Ho Chi Minh City, Viet Nam.

The positioning statement is as follows: "It is essential that robust, comprehensive and socially responsible standards are implemented within aquaculture and its supply industries and that human rights are protected.

"To achieve this, the parties below are committed to using their influence within aquaculture supply chains to promote the spread of good labour practices by supporting and promoting Fishery Improvement Projects that incorporate social standards based on the key elements of the ILO Work in Fishing Convention (ILO 188) (with a priority being the prevention of trafficked or bonded labour) and those programs based on these, including fishing vessel standards such as Seafish’s Responsible Fishing Scheme."
