Abstract Objectives - Develop a method to assess social sustainability of Capture fisheries - Apply this method to a Norwegian trawler Methods - Indicators were defined for working conditions, terms of employment, fish welfare, job satisfaction, and food safety and product quality - Rubrics (i.e. categories describing performance) were determined - Data were collected through questionnaires Conclusions - Our methods provides insight into social sustainability at the level of the vessel and can be used to identify room for improvement Discussion - Validity of Indicators for job satisfaction and professional pride cannot be guaranteed - Some rubrics only apply to capture fisheries or Norway - Rubric assessment is more practical than benchmarking
