SHANNON SERVICE on Slavery at Sea /201

For The Wild

Science & Medicine

The waters surrounding Thailand are among the most barren, overfished regions on the planet. With plundered marine stocks, vessels have begun to stay at sea longer and travel further from Thai shores, often fishing illegally in other territories. Facing a labor shortage, operators have turned to human trafficking networks and forced, bonded, and slave labour to crew their ships. Once at sea, fishermen can often go months, or even years, without setting foot on land. On this week’s episode, Shannon Service joins us to discuss her film Ghost Fleet, which documents the cycle of abuse within the Thai fishing trade and the larger systemic issues that drive such exploitation. An investigative reporter and producer, Shannon has done work for the BBC, PBS, National Public Radio, The Guardian of London, Slate and Newsweek among others. Music by 40 Million Feet.
