Action against Trawler in North Atlantic

Resource - Greenpeace asset

Greenpeace activists from the MY Arctic Sunrise attach floating devices to the cables of the Spanish fishing trawler Muxia, registered in Cadiz forcing her to haul her nets empty, less than an hour after starting the trawl. The trawler is fishing at 450 meters deep, 170 km off the west coast of Ireland in the north east Atlantic ocean destroying the fish habitats of over exploited stocks. Greenpeace is currently in the The North East Atlantic exposing deep-sea bottom trawling as one of the most destructive and unsustainable fishery practices in Europe.
