Today we've released shocking footage of ocean
life dying in gruesome ways at the hands of industrial tuna fishers in the
Pacific Ocean. The footage was shot by a New Zealand helicopter pilot turned
whistleblower, who undertook aerial reconnaissance for tuna boats in the
Pacific in 2009.
Without fail, anytime I blog about more sustainable fish there will be at least one comment along the lines of ‘go vegan’ or ‘no one needs to eat fish anyway!’ That is of course fine and a viewpoint I (as a vegetarian of 25 years and counting) can certainly sympathise with.

This animation highlights some very fishy business we exposed in Spain recently. The case we uncovered, followed a nine-month investigation into the fishy dealings of “Toño”, one of Spain’s notorious fishing barons. We exposed how his family network has amassed a list of convictions for illegal fishing and are continuing to operate around the world, putting vital fish stocks in danger.
Our new report shows how overfishing and climate change are taking their toll on West African seas.
We've been investigating
overfishing in West African waters for a long time and our new report, ‘Empty Nets, Empty
Future’ shows, in a stark light, how the local fishing industry in West Africa is under threat.
