Fisheries

Working to improve fishers’ lives.

ITF represents fishers working at sea and on land, as part of the supply chain. We campaign for better working conditions in an industry that can be harsh and oppressive to those working outside regulation.

Help us create a fairer, safer and more sustainable future for our fisheries and their workers.
