There is a huge problem within the International Fisheries industry and that is the rampant use of Fisheries Slaves. Fisheries slaves are often recruited by companies to go on distant-bound vessels who overwork their crew, underfeed them, and throw them overboard when they die or are close to dying due to inhumane working conditions.
The Indonesian government might institute a ban on their citizens working on international fishing vessels to protect them and work with the recruitment companies to ensure they work with the proper companies.
