Bottom Trawling in North Atlantic Ocean

Resource - Greenpeace asset

The fishing boat Santa Cristina, from Portugal, bottom trawls for Deep Sea Red Fish (Sabastes Marinus) at depths of 650 meters in the North Atlantic Ocean. The Greenpeace ship Esperanza is documenting shrimp bottom trawl fisheries. Together with the Deep Sea Conservation Coalition Greenpeace calls for a UN moratorium on high seas bottom trawling to allow scientists the time to identify and assess deep-sea biodiversity and to institute the protection required before it is too late.
