Workers in Benjina, Indonesia, load fish into a cargo ship bound for Thailand last November. Seafood caught by slaves mixes in with other fish at a number of sites in Thailand, including processing plants. U.S. customs records show that several of those Thai factories ship to the United States.
Some of the seafood that winds up in American grocery stores, in restaurants, even in cat food may have been caught by Burmese slaves. That's the conclusion of a yearlong investigation by The Associated Press.
