Using 59 cases from the C4ADS Forced Labor Case Database, this analysis finds that between 2015 and 2020, Taiwan, Singapore, China, and South Africa were the most common port states visited by fishing vessels using forced labor, while Kaohsiung, Singapore, and Cape Town were the individual ports most frequently visited by fishing vessels using forced labor.
