Trawling Documentation in the Pacific Ocean

Resource - Greenpeace asset

Unwanted bycatch, including a starfish in a net, far outweighs the target catch of orange roughy in a deep sea trawl from international waters in the Tasman Sea. Greenpeace along with more than a thousand scientists are supporting the call for a moratorium on high seas bottom trawling, because of the vast amount of marine life that is destroyed by this fishing method.
