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.
What would it take for you to work in a fishing vessel in international waters? Share your thoughts in the Speak Up For Blue Facebook Group: http://www.speakupforblue.com/group.
