Fishery, also known as the “aquatic industry”, refers to the production sector that obtains economically valuable fish or other aquatic animals and plants from the water. It includes the aquatic fishing industry that collects aquatic animals and plants resources from the water and the aquaculture industry that breeds aquatic animals and plants in the water. Compared with other professions, fishery, especially marine fishery, is recognized as one of the most dangerous industries. The marine fishery is a high-input and high-risk industry. Ships and fishery workers may suffer far greater risks than land industries when they sail and operate at sea. Besides force majeure factors, human factors such as improper operation can easily cause significant damage to ship and crews. In addition, marine fisheries involve the delimitation of the exclusive economic zones of various countries, and fishers may also be caught by coast guard officers and attacked by pirates when they cross-border fishing. Due to the trans-regional nature of marine fisheries, its labor protection issues must not only rely on the laws and regulations within countries but also rely on the relevant protection systems of international law. Therefore, it is very meaningful to explore the mechanisms and deficiencies of the current international law to protect fishery labor.
