SSF Guidelines: Social development, employment and decent work

This video gives insights into issues of social development, employment and decent work in small-scale fisheries. Many small-scale fishing communities around the world lack access to basic services such as drinking water and housing, but also to education and health services. Most jobs in this sector are informal, the earnings are often unstable, and the workplace can be unsafe.
For the rights of fishers and fish workers to be recognized, it is key that fishers and fish workers are consulted in decision affecting them. Everyone should be able to work under decent and gainful conditions. This includes migrant workers. Forced labour, violence and debt bondage must end.
