Seabound: the journey to modern slavery on the high seas

Who’s behind it? – Greenpeace (2019)


How can it help? – This report raises both social and environmental issues concerning distant water fishing operations. It is written with the purpose of bringing these issues to the public’s attention, raising greater awareness among authorities, and eventually mobilising support for critical policy actions in the region. At the center of this report are the experiences of Indonesian and Filipino migrant fishers who commonly work onboard foreign distant water fishing fleets. Through direct interviews, paper trail and corroborative information Greenpeace Southeast Asia presents a snapshot of the particular conditions of their lives onboard these fishing vessels and how they arrived to be in such situations in the first place.
