The activists have attached symbolic Euro bank notes on the hull of the European PFA super trawler ëMaartje Theadoraí. The money represents the financial support from unknowing, European tax payerís pockets to the destructive fishing practices of the European fleets. 90 % of the cost for fishing rights to these huge trawlers that plunder West African waters is financed by EU tax money.03/02/2012
