Fishers and Plunderers focuses on the exploitation of fish and fishers alike in a global industry that gives little consideration to either conservation or human rights. In a business characterized by overprovisioned vessels and shortages of fish, young men are routinely trafficked from poor areas onto fishing boats to work under conditions of virtual slavery. Poverty and debt push many towards piracy and drugs―although the criminality linked to the industry extends far beyond any individual worker, vessel, or fleet. Fishers and Plunderers provides strong evidence of industry-wide crimes and injustices and argues for regulations that protect the rights of fishers across the board.

Review:

"Today, reality TV shows about commercial fishing depict a world of crusty, charismatic sea captains and crews who may work hard and get wet but exult in a love of their job and often hit a lottery of big paydays. Yet commercial fishing remains by far the most dangerous occupation in the world...as is confirmed in the excellent book, Fishers and Plunderers." (Counterpunch)

Book Description PLUTO PRESS, United Kingdom, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Abuses and slavery at sea are largely missing from narratives of work and environmental exploitation in the mainstream. This book shines a light on the exploitation of fish and fishers alike in a global industry driven by profits. Conservation and human rights in this industry are huge problems: with vast overprovision of vessels and shortages of fish, labour costs are targeted and young men are trafficked from poor areas onto vessels in virtual slavery. The resultant poverty and debt bonding pushes many towards trafficking drugs and piracy - although the criminality linked to the industry extends far beyond the level of the individual, vessel or ing first hand testimony and shocking examples of these abuses, the book uncovers these crimes and injustices, with the authors arguing for regulations which if implemented could protect the rights of fishers across the board.

Book Description Condition: New. Abuses and slavery at sea are largely missing from narratives of environmental exploitation. With vast overprovision of vessels and shortages of fish, labour costs are targeted and young men are trafficked onto vessels in virtual slavery. The authors expose the dirty secret of human rights abuse that borders on the genocide of innocent young fishers in an industry infested with criminality, where the flag state is absent or where it is victim and culprit at the same time.
