Oxfam is undertaking a research on inequality in seafood value chains as part of its Unequal Portions campaign. The Uneven Portion campaign aims to highlight and address inequality in value chains. It understands that inequality of power in value chains, manifested in the unfair distributions of risks and benefits among different actors in supply chains - is a critical factor in poverty and food injustice.
The fisheries and seafood sector will be the focus of the first year of the UP campaign. The fisheries and seafood sector is major contributor to world trade and economy.  Approximately 10% to 12% of the world’s population depends on fisheries and seafood production for their incomes and livelihoods The seafood economy, Marine Stewardship Council. In 2012, global exports of fish and seafood products were at USD 129 billion – more than the combined net export value of rice, coffee and sugar from developing countries. The seafood economy, Marine Stewardship Council Developing countries, most of which are net fish and seafood exporters, account for more than half of trade of this commodity group. Ibid However, the fishery and seafood’s sector’s impressive contribution to world trade and economy is not without costs. Various reports documenting cases of exploitation of young boys and girls, slavery, deplorable working conditions and low wages especially for vulnerable migrant workers cast a dark shadow on the sector. These call attention to the issue of inequality in the fish and seafood supply chain as it indicates that the immense value generated by this multi-billion industry is clearly not benefiting its most vulnerable, yet most important stakeholders.  Additionally, there are issues regarding the environmental sustainability of intensive fisheries and aquaculture operations. There are concerns that over fishing and the over-exploitation of developing countries’ natural resources will undermine its capacity to produce enough fish and seafood for present and future generations.
