Our oceans are hosts to a wide range of fishing activities.
According to United Nations statistics, the total volume of seafood caught by fishing vessels in 2018 exceeded 179 million MT, of which nearly 160 million MT was allocated towards human consumption.

FCF is extensively engaged with tuna fisheries around the globe, partaking in the raw material trading of skipjack, yellowfin, bigeye, and albacore tuna. As one of the most consumed seafood products worldwide, tuna is a vital source of protein for food security and a major contributor to the economies of numerous countries.

Since 2015, FCF has formed the Task Force Team under the direct management of the President of FCF to undertake various sustainability and social responsibility projects.

Accordingly, FCF is facilitating Fisheries Improvement Projects (FIP) or Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certifications across all oceans, and supporting scientific-based best conservation and management practices to reach a viable balance between commercial interests and marine conservation.

Supporting suppliers to implement a traceability system that is verifiable by a credible third-party.

Promoting MSC certification to the global supply chain

Social

Our Goal

FCF advocates for labor right throughout the fishing industry, and we aim to ensure fair treatment, as well as workplace health and safety at sea for the crew members who harvest the fish that support our supply chain. The innovative "FCF Social Responsibility Program" has been developed based on the Seafood Task Force Code of Conduct, with its industry-accepted principles, that aims to protect the welfare of crew members, which minimizes the risk of human rights violation from entering our supply chain.

Social Evaluation

Actively participate in working groups to align the industrial best practices and common solutions for fair treatment and human rights of crew on board.

Risk Evaluation Tool & Worker Voice
