Report of the Roundtable event Human Rights in the salmon farming industry
05 May 2020
Bergen, Norway, Europe
Organized by DIHR, Rafto Foundation and IHRB, in Bergen, Norway in December 2019. The report discusses the main human rights issues, challenges, good practices and ways forward in the global salmon farming industry.
"The Roundtable on salmon farming and human rights was organised in light of the urgent need to have a stronger focus on human rights issues in the salmon farming and aquaculture feed industries globally. While, in the past, some attention has been paid to environmental impacts of the industry, as well as some social- and governance related issues, not enough attention has been paid to human rights. Therefore, three human rights organisations with extensive experience in human rights and business, including working with businesses - the Rafto Foundation for Human Rights, the Danish Institute for Human Rights (DIHR) and Institute for Human Rights and Business (IHRB) - gathered more than 25 stakeholders, including companies from the salmon farming and aquaculture feed industries and financial organisations to discuss this topic in Bergen, given the significance of the aquaculture industry to Norway."
