Over the past few years, criticisms have been directed at the Thai government for labor and human rights abuses occurring in the country. Evidence of human trafficking, forced labor, and human rights abuses were described by the media and NGO sources. In anticipation of the 2016 Trafficking in Persons Report, FishWise has updated its briefing document on the issue.

The briefing describes the primary human rights issues in Thai shrimp supply chains, the United States and European Union’s responses to this issue, a history of media attention paid to the issue, Thailand’s response, and actions from and recommendations for the seafood industry.
