The human rights abuses and risks component of the Sustainable Seafood Data Tool has two features: the world map and the country profiles. Learn more about how to navigate each feature below.
The world map feature was created using Tableau, a software package designed to visually represent complex data. This is where you can access summary information on all countries featured in the tool. Hover over a country to open a pop-up that includes high-level information about the country’s human rights abuses and risks.
There are several filters you can use to identify countries in the tool, accessible by using the dropdown menus along the top of the world map. Only one selected value is valid for each of the filters. Filters include:
Note that the filters are additive when more than one is used. For example, selecting the Evidence of abuses filter’s Yes value and the Flag of convenience filter’s Yes value will isolate those countries that have both evidence of abuses and a flag of convenience.
Each country featured in the tool has a profile that provides additional detail on any evidence of forced labor, child labor, and/or human trafficking in seafood and risk factors, along with links to sources of the information.
You can reach the country profile by clicking on the country on the world map.
