  • The Inauguration of ‘Demonstration Boat’ to Promote the Welfare of Seafarers
    In accordance with the Royal Thai Government’s policy to promote the welfare of seafarers onboard fishing vessels, the Department of Fisheries, Nestlé S.A., and Thai Union Group PCL officially inaugurated a demonstration boat at the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center (SEAFDEC), Samut Prakarn province, on 28 February 2018. The aforementioned project was part of the demonstration boat programme started in 2016. The Demonstration Boat named “Plalang 1” was a refurbished traditional Thai fishing board that has been transformed into a vessel to demonstrate proper living and working conditions on boats – for instance, the allocation of appropriate rest areas, a designated dining area, provision for recreational activities, installation of toilet facilities with proper sanitation standards, and provision of adequate food, drinking water, medicine and medical supplies. Plalang 1 was launched into the sea in December 2017, and since then, the relevant authorities have invited boat owners and boat operators to take part in study tours as well as attend training sessions on the welfare of seafarers for fishing operators and workers onboard. The Royal Thai Government implemented the Order of the Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives on Safety, Health and Welfare at Work for Seafarers on 25 February 2016. The project on demonstration boats not only complies with the objectives of the Ministry’s Order but also sets the standard and guidelines for meeting the Convention for Human Rights at Sea of the International Labour Organization (ILO C188). Currently, the Royal Thai Government is planning to ratify the Convention by June 2018 and improve laws and regulations to efficiently promote labour protection and the welfare of workers in the fisheries sector. The demonstration boat project is a result of the excellent initiative based on the Pracharath (social enterprises) policy to promote cooperation between the public and private sector. This initiative is led by the Department of Fisheries, with the support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Labour, in cooperation with Nestlé, Thai Union, SEAFDEC, and NGOs such as Verité. It aims to promote the rights and welfare of seafarers in the fisheries sector to ensure that they will be protected under Thai law, taking into account safety standards and the quality of living conditions, with a view to elevating Thailand’s fisheries sector to be in line with international standards.
  • Press Release : Thailand is preparing to declare the IUU-free Thailand
    Thailand has declared the prevention, deterrence, and elimination of the illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing as a national agenda, and has pursued the reform of the entire fisheries system with a view to promote sustainable and responsible fisheries. In order to showcase Thailand’s commitment to promoting the entire fisheries sector to be in line with international standards as well as to receive recognition from the international community, the Royal Thai Government is preparing to declare the policy of Thailand being free from IUU aquatic animals and fisheries products (IUU-free Thailand). This initiative has been adopted at the meeting of National Fisheries Committee on 25 January 2018, and is currently pending the Cabinet’s approval. In moving towards IUU-free Thailand, Thailand has built upon the reforms of all dimensions undertaken during nearly the past 3 years, including the reform of legal framework and implementing regulations, the fisheries management limiting the fishing license issuance in compliance with the quantity of aquatic animals, the fleet management putting control over fishing vessels of all sizes and types, the monitoring, control and surveillance through port-in and port-out control, installation of vessel monitoring system, and daily inspections at seas, as well as the development of traceability system for catches from Thai-flagged vessels and foreign vessels. To make IUU-free Thailand recognized by the international community, much remains to be done, especially the development of the Thai catch certification system to be in compliance with international standards. Thailand will join hands with the European Union for the system development, and with other flag states in verifying that the source of aquatic animals is not related to any illegal fishing activity. Discussions with other countries on this matter have already started. Moreover, workers on the fishing vessels must be legal and protected under the universal principle. Thailand’s preparation for the IUU-free Thailand declaration is another step along the Government’s path to ensuring the sustainability of the fisheries sector in the long run, and to mobilize the fisheries reform to be continuously carried out regardless of the change in the Government.
