Crackdown pushes problem away

A GREENPEACE investigation alleges an international crackdown on human rights abuses in the Thai fishing industry has forced the problem to move elsewhere.

Seafood caught by such vessels is largely illegal, unreported, unregulated and - in clear violation of international labour, supply and fishing codes - has entered the supply chains of global export companies.
