The Seafood Slavery Risk Tool is a risk indicator tool that provides knowledge and information based on professional assessments and perspectives from the fishing industry, civil society, and the anti-modern slavery community. The tool contains a series of risk profiles for different species of fish by geographical location.
The Risk Tool rates the likelihood that forced labour, human trafficking, or hazardous child labour is occurring on fishing boats in a fishery. Ratings are not produced for countries. Evidence from credible media and authoritative institutions and civil society organizations is evaluated according to the Risk’s Tool criteria to determine a profile fishery’s rating. A fishery can be rated critical, high, moderate, or low risk.
