Wow... the rest of the world just noticed Thai slave ships..

Thailand is Cambodia's neighbor to the West, and this forum is dedicated to Thai news, stories, reviews, blogs, videos, Thai people and anything else related to the country. A lot of expats have both lived and worked in Cambodia and Thailand, and this area is a place to discuss all aspects of life in Thailand and what's going on there. Most topics are about Bangkok and Pattaya because of their larger populations of expatriates and tourists in those cities, but this is for all things Thai.

If the Thai shrimp boats are using slave labor, you wouldn't know it from the retail prices in the US. The cost alone would bring a tear to your eye.

Ya it was pretty cheap to buy a bag of them, small ones. But easy to throw in a meal.
