More than 100 concerned scientists on Monday called on Congress in a letter to take action against unsustainable and harmful fishing practices.

Illegal fishing and human rights abuses like forced labor are inherently connected, scientists write, because unsustainable fishing practices, which push vessels further out to sea for longer periods of time, come at a high price.

Americans, according to an Oceana poll, overwhelmingly support policies mitigating illegal fishing and human rights abuses in the seafood industry.
