Slavery in the Waters of Thailand

BAITED

Slavery in the Waters of Thailand

In the beauty of the sea, there is a treacherous reality.

Right now, thousands of men are being trafficked into Thailand’s massive fishing industry. This 7-billion-dollar industry employs hundreds of thousands on boats across international waters and on land in processing facilities.

Instead, they’re sold to boat captains and forced to take on non-stop, perilous work. Back home, their families are left to wonder if they’ll ever return.
