Human Rights and Social Responsibility Policy

The FisheryProgress Human Rights and Social Responsibility (HRSR) Policy was initially released in May 2021, and updated in December 2022. The objectives of the policy are to help FIPs identify and reduce the risk of human and labor rights abuses at the harvest stage of their supply chains and to increase transparency around the efforts FIPs and their participants are taking to address human and labor rights risks.

All FIPs reporting on FisheryProgress.org are required to comply with the policy.

FisheryProgress FIP Review Guidelines

FisheryProgress is a progress reporting platform that makes FIP improvement data transparent and accessible. FisheryProgress reviews all environmental and social information FIPs submit to determine if the information submitted meets the site’s requirements as outlined in the FIP Review Guidelines. FisheryProgress does not endorse or verify claims regarding on-the-ground working conditions or the absence of human and labor rights violations. Compliance with the HRSR Policy does not mean that FIPs can claim that they are free from human rights abuses.
