The National Fisheries Association of Thailand is seeking to abolish several critical fisheries enforcement regulations that are essential in Thailand’s fight against illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing and associated human rights abuse on fishing vessels. This open letter to the Thai Prime Minister, signed by 37 organisations, calls on the Royal Thai Government, Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives, Department of Fisheries, and Ministry of Labour to reject these demands and instead ensure the preservation and elevation of internationally recognised best practices in both fisheries and labour regulations.
