Thailand has become the first country in Asia to ratify the Work in Fishing Convention, 2007 (No.188), which protects the living and working conditions of fishers on board vessels. The Work in Fishing Convention sets out binding requirements relating to work on board fishing vessels, including occupational safety and health, medical care at sea and ashore, rest periods, written work agreements and social security protection. It also aims to ensure that fishing vessels provide decent living conditions for fishers on board.
