This week’s Ours to Protect looks at how EU regulation is changing in an attempt to improve compliance and traceability in the supply chain. 

Journalist Sarah Coleman spoke to Green MEP Grace O’Sullivan during the October plenary session of the European Parliament in Strasbourg to ask what these negotiations were hoping to achieve. Barry Andrews MEP also explained what this report has revealed about the traceability of fish sold in the EU, and how a new Outlaw Ocean investigation suggests that China is using forced labour in seafood processing factories which is then being exported to the United States and the European Union. 

The Fianna Fail MEP has warned “This could have major implications for Irish retailers if seafood is making its way to supermarket shelves in Ireland,” and explained to Sarah what the investigation meant.
