SUPPLY CHAINED: HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSES IN THE GLOBAL TUNA INDUSTRY Beaten. Abused. Forced to take drugs. You won’t believe what’s happening to workers in today’s seafood industry. New Greenpeace research will take you inside fishing fleets to expose what’s really happening at sea.


WHAT WE FOUND AT SEA

What's in the can? Is it just tuna? Or is it tainted by the abuse and exploitation of workers and the marine environment?


Thailand’s seafood sector has been linked to human trafficking, debt bondage, child labour, forced labour and other serious human rights abuses.



READ THEIR STORIES

Men and women across the seafood sector are exposed to a range of abuses. This is especially true in Thai fishing vessels. For workers, debt bondage, child labour and other serious abuses are common. But for victims of trafficking, the story is even darker.

LEADS TO HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSES

Exploitation flourishes in the Thai fishing industry because of inadequate regulations. This is fueled by the availability of cheap labour from across Southeast Asia and huge increase in fishing capacity.
