An assessment of recruitment practices and labor conditions at six sites in Thailand that contribute to fishmeal production in Nestlé's shrimp supply chain. The sites included three shrimp farms (one in Mahachai and two in Surat Thani), two ports of origin (Ranong Fish Port and Mahachai Fish Port), and one docked fishing boat (in Ranong Fish Port). The researchers found indicators of forced labor, trafficking, and child labor to be present among sea-based and land-based workers engaged in the production sites covered by the assessment.
