Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) fishing, or pirate fishing, has been recognised as one of the major threats to the world's fish stocks. However, the focus so far has mostly been on the impacts on marine life and on local fishing communities. While these problems are extremely serious, there's one more that is rarely reported: human rights violations. Escaping regulatory checks on their catches, IUU vessel operators frequently get away with seriously abusing the human rights of their crews. In this film, we look at the conditions in which people on board vessels that engage in pirate fishing live and work.
