OSA Think Pieces

On-board Social Accountability (OSA) International has been developed to empower the seafood sector itself to be able to improve the treatment of personnel on-board fishing vessels and in
aquaculture operations as their places of work.

Social accountability issues in the supply-chains of commercial seafood production are becoming increasingly important, with growing awareness about workers and their working conditions, whether in processing operations, aquaculture or at-sea harvest operations (labour on board).

OSA is pleased to have partnered with WWF and PhD candidate Bianca Haas to have prepared this information paper for WCPFC-17. WCPFC is the only RFMO to have a resolution addressing labour rights and it will be important to develop this into a binding conservation management measure, as Indonesia is proposing.
