‘Monster Boats’ – Greenpeace Report on Super Trawlers

NEWS FROM THE CELTIC LEAGUE

We have been tracking the destructive activities of super trawlers of the West of Ireland recently, there’s another there today the ‘Willem Van Der Zwan’.

Last year Greenpeace put together a really detailed report on these vessels (including all the ones we have mentioned in recent days).

Its appropriately titled ‘Monster Boats’ and goes into great detail about the number and scope for destruction of the marine eco-system these vessels pose. Each vessel is described in specific detail. It can be quite rightly described as a no holds barred expose of these predators of the seas.

It’s not a light read at almost 100 pages but if you share our concern its well worth studying (link here):
