Was your seafood caught with slave labour? New database helps retailers combat abuse

Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch, Liberty Asia and the Sustainable Fisheries Partnership have created a database to help corporate seafood buyers check fisheries for risk of slavery, forced labour and hazardous child labour.

The database improves transparency in supply chains and could help retailers to meet their anti-slavery commitments. The database is based on government and media reports. It is also cross-checked with reports on labour abuses in other sectors, such as forestry, within a country.

The database can be accessed here: Seafood Slavery Risk Tool.
