BONUS – Human Rights Abuse at Sea, with Ian Urbina

View descriptionShare

"These crews are typically working 20 hours straight before they have maybe a two hour break"

Fishing is having a huge impact on the lives of humans.  Slavery, abduction and even murders are taking place on fishing fleets around the world and with these crimes are being committed far from land, they are unknown or perhaps even unthinkable to most of us. 

In this bonus episode, producer Izzie Clarke speaks with Ian Urbina, a journalist for the New York Times and the Director of the Outlaw Ocean project . In what began as an award-winning series in 2015 in The New York Times and a resulting book, the Outlaw Ocean is a non-profit journalism organization that produces high-impact investigative stories about lawlessness at sea and the diversity of environmental, human rights, and labour abuses occurring offshore around the world.
