Action against Lithanian Trawler "Irvinga"

Photo | 5 March, 2012

Greenpeace puts a banner against overfishing by the ramp of Lithanian fishing super trawler vessel "IRVINGA" 30 miles off the coast of Senegal. West African waters including those of Senegal have been subject to overfishing for decades, the effects of which are being felt by local communities. The scientific community recognizes that fishing capacity of many stocks must be reduced in order to ensure the long term sustainability of West Africaís marine resources. Greenpeace is campaigning in West Africa for the establishment of a sustainable, low impact fisheries policy that takes into account the needs and interests of small-scale fishermen and the local communities that depend on healthy oceans.02/19/2012
