Taiwanese fishing vessels caught

Date: 28/09/2009

Taiwanese longline tuna fishing vessels were caught by Greenpeace illegally transferring fish at sea. Fishing vessels Her Hae and Jia Yu Fa were carrying tuna and shark fins, and were photographed while transferring tuna from one ship to another in a pocket of international waters between Papua New Guinea and the Federated States of Micronesia, an area proposed as a marine reserve. They abandoned their trans-shipment process and fled the area as the Greenpeace ship Esperanza approached the vicinity.
