Talk Session 1: Social Responsibility in the Global Seafood Supply Chain

In 2015, the issue of slavery in the seafood supply chain exploded into global newspapers. A web of international seafood businesses based in Southeast Asia feed slavery-produced seafood into the world markets. Men and women are kidnapped, tricked, trafficked, and used on boats as well as in processing plants. In the US and Europe where these news reports have been released, consumers have started holding retailers and seafood companies accountable, demanding that they do more to take care that their supply chain is clean. In this session, we are inviting Patima Tungpuchatakul, who has saved over 3000 migrant workers from the Thai seafood industry, and Tobias Aguirre, an expert of seafood traceability and issues around the global seafood supply chain.
