Slaves would often commit suicide by jumping overboard or refusing to eat.
About 15% of the Africans died at sea.
Slaves were transported in the most horrible and inhumane way possible. They were crammed together so tightly that they almost couldn't move. They were fed the most horrible food only to keep them strong so the crew would get money at the other end. As the slaves were only taken out of the hold to be exercised all of their urine and excrement stayed where it was. Many of the slaves caught diseases such as dysentery and died. Most unfortunately, some of the women, and even children, were also used for the "personal gratification" of crew members. The slaves were beaten for the smallest things often until they died. On average only half of the slaves who set off from Africa got to the Americas alive. Horrible.

The conditions on the slave ships were horrible and inhumane. The slaves did not get food or water making a lot of them die.

Slaves were manacled and packed tightly into the holds of the slave ships.
slaves were packed into the cargo holds on ships by slave traders. Many of them died because of the cramped and unsanitary conditions
Conditions on slave ships were bad for many reasons. Food was sometimes in short supply and they didn't have good ways to keep it fresh. There was no real medical care to speak of, and diseases spread quickly. Most times, the slaves were chained together and packed in so tightly, they could barely move.
Slave ships to the United States ended when slavery in the United States ended...in 1864.
The Slave Trade
The conditions for the crew were almost as bad as the slave's conditions and the death rate was just as high! Crew were beaten, whipped, chained, denied food, shot and even stabbed! It was a very dangerous job.
