Successful Change on the Water Fund applications

The Change on the Water Fund aims to support projects in our member company supply chains that positively impact the human rights and labour standards of fishers and aquaculture workers. The Fund is open to members of the SEA Alliance and their partners. Each application must involve collaboration between two or more SEA Alliance participating companies.

Applications for the first funding round closed on Friday 2 September 2022. The total funding available in the first round of funding was £60,000. Individual grants of between £15,000 and £20,000 were awarded.

Four projects received funding and commenced in December 2022/January 2023:

  • Establishing a mobile application promoting worker rights and incorporating a national grievance mechanism. Maldives Pole-and-line/Handline tuna fishery, Maldives Exclusive Zone.
  • Fishing First Safety Management Project – Northern Ireland Fish Supply Chain Transparency.
  • Thai Seafood Producers: Worker Voice and Survey, Thai Fishing Industry, Thailand.
  • International Transport Workers Federation (ITF) and Stella Maris: Development and dissemination of resources for migrant crew in the UK fishing industry, UK.

There will be a further round of funding later in the year.
