Activists from the Greenpeace ship MY Esperanza expose four Burmese vessels indulging in illegal fishing in the Indian exclusive economic zone (EEZ) off the Andaman Islands' coast. The violating vessels neither have necessary registration documents nor a clearly displayed name. Their catch consists mostly of shark and yellow fin tuna. All four vessels leave for Burmese waters as soon as Greenpeace catch their blatant violation. 02/19/2012
