The tiger prawn industry in Thailand exploits people and the environment. Small fish and juvenile sharks, caught by Thai trawlers operating illegally in foreign waters from Indonesia to Bangladesh, are ground into fishmeal for prawn food. As fishing stocks are depleted, local fishermen are affected. Thai trawlers operators often hire Burmese workers who are exploited and abused. The Thai prawn industry is the largest of its kind in the world and markets prawns to European consumers.
