"Here in Mauritius we are struggling for saving our fishing grounds. Foreign fleets are destroying our fish stocks. In order to allow the environment to recover and let the local fishermen access to their own fish, the agreements with foreign fleets have to be cancelled." "We congratulate you for gathering first time as European artisanal fishermen and support you in your struggle for getting a fair access to fish resources in your country’s waters." Judex Ramphaul, an artisanal fisherman and President of Syndicat des Pecheurs, near Port Louis. Greenpeace is on an expedition in the Indian Ocean to expose overfishing and to highlight the problems associated with excessive tuna fishing, unsustainable or illegal fishing practices, the lack of law enforcement, and to listen to communities, learn about fishing practices and build alliances so that the Indian Ocean region can continue to provide fish and fishing jobs for future generations.
