Oceans 5 support allows CIES, KFEM and APIL to form a network and implement a collaborative program of work that will attain improvements to transparency in South Korea’s distant water/domestic fishing fleets; achieve benchmarked improvements to the legal framework for fisheries control and labor conditions in Korea’s distant water fleets in line with international best practice; implement fisheries (both domestic and distant water) and labor legislation in Korea; and get Korean industries incorporate IUU fishing and human rights risks into their due diligence processes.

This proposal was developed in collaboration with the Oak Foundation and multiple international and national NGOs in Korea.
