Study reveals gender bias in the UK seafood sector

UNITED KINGDOM
Saturday, June 17, 2017
 

The study – carried out online by Survey Monkey among people already working in seafood – showed nearly one-third (30%) of UK respondents had encountered sex discrimination.

And nearly half (48%) said the UK industry was perceived as male-dominated, which discouraged women from taking up roles.

More than three quarters (77%) said they would actively encourage more women to think about a career in the sector, while in excess of two-thirds (67%) felt the industry could do more to attract women.

The Women in Seafood 2017 Survey questioned people in 15 countries on behalf of Seafish and IntraFish Media.
