Thailand is the world’s third-largest exporter of seafood, shipping shrimp, tuna and other fish to supermarket chains and pet food companies in the U.S. and Europe. But a series of investigations by the Associated Press and other news agencies have highlighted a pervasive problem in the Thai fishing industry: the use of slave labor from people tricked or kidnapped into working at sea. The work of the AP was so dramatic and had such far-reaching impact that it garnered the news agency a Pulitzer prize for public service journalism this year. On this edition of Global Journalist, a look at slavery at sea in Southeast Asia, and what’s being done to fight it. Note: This program originally aired on April 28, 2016.
