Seafood from Slaves: From Investigation to Pulitzer-Prize

Seafood from Slaves

Four Associated Press reporters risked their own safety to uncover slavery and abuse in the Southeast Asian fishing industry. Their project, "Seafood from Slaves," won more than 30 journalism awards including the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service, the George Polk Award for Foreign Reporting, the Goldsmith Prize for Investigative Reporting, the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights International Journalism Award, the Gerald Loeb Award for Investigative Reporting and the Selden Ring Award for Investigative Reporting.
