Follow us as we take a look at the darker side of seafood: slavery aboard fishing vessels. In this week's episode, we will hear from Rahat, a Thai fisherman who was caught at sea for years before he was finally rescued from an Indonesian island in 2015. We'll also talk with victim advocates and international experts pushing for decent labor standards and stronger inspections aboard these trawlers.
