30 Apr 2015 -
One in two seafood workers is a woman. This worldwide desktop study, the first of its kind, presents what is known, and what remains to be investigated in this crucial component of the seafood industry. Women participate to all segments of the seafood industry, including fishing, farming, trading and selling, monitoring and administrating. But the widespread lack of consideration for their role and work in the seafood industry are, in many respect, disadvantageous to them and ultimately bar them from fully and equitably participate to the industry.
