Social issues in the seafood supply chain are becoming increasingly important, specifically those related to workers and working conditions both in processing and at sea. Terra Moana has partnered with Seafood Matter, a leader in improving seafood supply chain social conditions. We have been engaged by Austral Fisheries to review and assess their operations and provide insights into their crewing arrangements and improvement recommendations going forward in order to meet international best practice.
Report and Analysis
The team provided a social conditions gap analysis report and review against international best practice to achieve a higher level of compliance against the best available social accountability guidelines for Austral Fisheries.
Marcelo Hidalgo of Seafood Matter presented an overview of the social assessment approach he has developed at the 2017 Pacific Tuna Conference.
