FAO International Symposium on Fisheries Sustainability: Strengthening the Science-Policy Nexus

World Fisheries Day 2019: Social Responsibility in the Fisheries Value Chain

Sheikh Zayed Centre (FAO Headquarters)
 Rome time

The voice of fishers and fish workers needs to be heard. All over the world, human and labour rights violations and abuses
have been documented, and despite commendable efforts by many governments as well as by the industry, there are still
too many cases of unacceptable practises taking place.
This year, FAO, the Holy See, ILO, and partners celebrate our third World Fisheries Day together, with a focus on ensuring
social sustainability throughout the long and complex value chains of the fisheries and aquaculture sector.
