To mark World Fisheries Day, please join Stella Maris (formerly known as Apostleship of the Sea) for an online panel discussion on Tuesday 23 November from 7.30 pm to 9:00 pm. The webinar will look at at the darker side of the maritime world: modern slavery aboard some fishing vessels, and at what is being done about it.
Panellists include Deacon Nick O’Neill from the Diocese of Portsmouth (who is also Stella Maris Senior Area Port Chaplain for South England and Wales), experts from the UK’s Maritime and Coastguard Agency and other specialist organisations.
The panel will explore this issue further, to explain how fishers can find themselves trapped in this horrific situation, and what we at Stella Maris and others do to rescue and protect those in danger.
