Thailand’s Seafood Slaves: Human Trafficking, Slavery and Murder in Kantang’s Fishing Industry

This report builds on over three years of in-depth research and field investigations to first expose abuse and then critically assess claims that slavery and 'pirate' fishing in Thailand’s export-oriented seafood sector have been significantly reduced. By returning to Kantang, this report presents evidence that is broadly representative of trends across the country – namely the Government’s ongoing failure to address corruption and prosecute and convict those engaging in and benefiting from criminal activity.8 EJF recommends that this report is read in conjunction with its previous three publications about the Thai seafood sector: Pirates and Slaves, Slavery at Sea and Sold to the Sea.
