Catcher to counter

Working with food unions to improve fishing

From catcher to counter is a joint programme between the ITF and the International Union of Food Workers (IUF). Its objective is to tackle the illegal fishing and lack of regulation rife in the sector today. From catcher to counter addresses the fishing industry as whole. Its aim is to:

  • increase union membership
  • strengthen unions
  • standardise conditions across multinational companies
  • improve terms of work
  • guarantee minimum working conditions
  • put workers at the centre of the campaign
  • ensure fishing is legal, regulated and reported
