Various concerns regarding abuses of workers engaged in the seafood industry have steadily attracted more attention from the media and civil society advocacy groups.

Since 2014 in particular a spate of press reports and NGO campaigns have been backed up by some well documented country studies. While the momentum has risen steadily, a critical moment was the publication by The Guardian newspaper in mid 2014 of its well documented articles on serious forced labour abuses in the Thai shrimp industry, documenting specific suppliers of shrimp feed to Thailand’s largest shrimp producer. However there have been a number of other press reports. There are links to the key press articles below in date order.
