Fair fish labelling on all seafood

2 years ago The Guardian exposed a very serious problem in the Thai fishing industry, they had been using slaves to catch prawns and many other fish. The Thai government have claimed they are cracking down on this and retailers have made an effort to to eliminate slave production from their supply chain but it is still difficult. I would like these stores to put a label on their fish products to ensure that they have been ethically produced. There is a organisation called Fair Fish who have a label to certify that workers are paid well and have good working conditions. Using that label would be good so that consumers could know whether what they had bought was produced without the use of slaves.
