About mast

The Multi-Stakeholder Initiative for Accountable Supply Chain of Thai Fisheries or MAST was established in March 2016 as a coalition to address the root causes of human trafficking and IUU fishing in the Southeast Asia fishing sector with a collaborative, constructive approach.


MAST combines the expertise of experienced on-the-ground experts from civil society with well-regarded professional consultancies to activate robust positive solutions for fisher communities. MAST aims to work with civil society, businesses, and governments to move toward real change with better living conditions for workers and fishers. Our ultimate goal is to create thriving fisher communities that promote sustainable fishery, providing consumers with ethically-sourced and seafood that is free from forced and slave labor.

In September 2018, The Multi-Stakeholder Initiative for Accountable Supply Chain of Thai Fisheries has been registered as a nonprofit company in Thailand under the name "MAST Human" to be a reflection of our works for human and the oceans.
