The purpose of this report is to present, analyse and share good practices and innovative interventions towards eradicating forced labour and other forms of labour exploitation in the fishing industry.

This report consists of two parts. Chapters 1 and 2 provide an introduction to the topic and a short summary of the main issues related to labour exploitation and abuse in the fishing sector. Chapters 3 through 7 introduce interventions from around the world aimed at improving labour conditions and protecting vulnerable workers in the fishing sector.
