Consultancy for Falling through the Net III: An Assessment of Covid-19 impacts on Workers’ Rights in Thailand’s Fishing and Seafood industry 2020





Consultancy for Falling through the Net III: An Assessment of Covid-19 impacts on Workers’ Rights in Thailand’s Fishing and Seafood industry 2020

Durations: 01 Nov 2020-31 March 2021


  1. Background:


The seafood industry in Thailand has come under national and international spotlights in the past few years for its abuses of labor on fishing vessels/processing plants as well as its overfishing practices in Thailand and neighboring waters. Much effort has been invested in working systematically to tackle these environmental and social challenges in the industry – from initiatives being driven by large seafood overseas buyers, to national initiatives led by the Thai government and leading Thai companies and exporters. Additionally, civil society actors – both at the national and international levels – have invested significant resources in addressing these dynamic and complex issues. However, progress has not been at its most effective and recent developments have highlighted duplications and strategic gaps in how civil society organizations (CSOs) have been engaging the industry and government to change policies and practices. Furthermore, local CSOs’ contributions have not been fully incorporated into the current institutional reform process and this absence means that an important accountability mechanism is missing from the process. With the above diagnostic, Oxfam has been designing and convening a Thai CSO Coalition (hereafter “the Coalition”) for Ethical and Sustainable Seafood, bringing together leading local CSOs (both environmental and labor NGOs) working in the seafood sector as one collective network to map out existing interventions and capacity gaps. One of the key objectives of the CSO Coalition is to raise awareness, expose and eradicate modern day slavery and human rights violation in the Thai fishing sector through policy-oriented, research grounded and evidence-based advocacy reports.

  1. Objectives of the research:

This research is being commissioned with four main objectives:

  1. To obtain the latest updates on the labour situations in the Thai fishery sector, particularly on basic labour rights faced by Myanmar and Cambodian migrant workers on fishing vessels in the fishery sector in eight target coastal provinces as well as migrant workers in seafood processing factories during the Covid-19 pandemic.  
  2. To formulate persuasive policy recommendations toward the Thai government, retailers, seafood companies and vessel owners to ensure that basic rights of workers are respected and labour abuses are effectively monitored by CSO and labour groups themselves.
  3. To enable the labour NGOs to effectively develop a sophisticated data collection system and establish a more collaborative way of working amongst various CSO actors.
  4. To gain a better understanding on the gender dynamics in the seafood sector and provide recommendations that prioritize how gender considerations can be integrated effectively.
