FisheryProgress is an institution that provides information on the progress of fisheries improvement globally. Fisheries improvement is implemented based on 3 basic principles: fisheries sustainability, environmental impact and effectiveness of fisheries management.
In May 2021, FisheryProgress added a new principle regarding Human Rights and Social Responsibility Policy. This new principle is to help identify and reduce the risk of human rights violations (in this case, workers in fisheries supply chain). Also encourage buyers to start paying attention, make wise decision when purchasing fishery products that focuses on environmental impact and sustainability of fisheries, and social aspects of workers in fisheries.
In February 2023, AP2HI launched materials on Human Rights and Social Responsibility originally adapted from FisheryProgress and made it more accessible and easily understood by fishery actors in member’s supply chain. The material produced for this activity is fully supported by Sustainable Fisheries Fund (SFF) Program from Resources Legacy Fund (RLF), which comes from David and Lucile Packard Foundation. In its implementation, we also cooperate with Destructive Fishing Watch Indonesia (DFW) in promoting a violation complaint hotline that can be accessed by all fishery actors through the National Fisheries Center (NFC) program, as a form of compliance in implementing the 4th FisheryProgress principle on providing grievance mechanism for fisheries.
