      Pattani resident Thet Phyo Lin said:

      Thai government efforts

      International response
      [HRW] are not calling for a ban on imports now, but if the Thai government does not make sufficient progress in the coming year and labour conditions are as bad as they are now, we would start calling for a red card.

      If the EU moves to ban seafood from Thailand it could have a serious impact on the Thai fishing industry.

      Adams said:

      The [Thai fishing association] would look for other markets obviously but the markets will be saturated so it will have a devastating effect on the Thai fishing industry and I think it would lead to concerted action by the Thai fishing association to clean up their act. You can read it here


      • There have been reports and allegations of human rights abuses, including forced labor and human trafficking, in Thailand's seafood industry. Some workers, many of whom are migrants from neighboring countries, have been subjected to long hours, low pay, poor working conditions, and physical abuse. Additionally, some workers have reported being coerced into working on fishing boats and being subjected to violence or being held captive.
        These reports have led to concerns about the state of labor rights in Thailand's seafood industry, and some have characterized the situation as state-sanctioned slavery. The Thai government has taken steps to address these concerns, including implementing new labor laws and regulations and increasing enforcement of existing laws. However, critics argue that more needs to be done to ensure that workers' rights are protected and that human rights abuses are not tolerated in the industry.
