Grinding Nemo: what's the real cost of your prawn curry?
The investigation carried out by The Economist highlights how so-called 'trash fish' is caught by Thai trawlers operating - sometimes illegally - in foreign waters before being ground into fishmeal for use in farmed prawn - or shrimp - feed. As fishing stocks are depleted, local fishermen are negatively affected.
Thai trawler operators often hire Burmese migrant workers who sometimes suffer brutal exploitation and abuse whilst at sea for lengthy periods. The Thai prawn industry is the largest of its kind in the world and supplies prawns to European consumers.
