Philippine Purse Seine Fishing Operation

A skipjack purse seine fishery operation underway on the deck of the Philippine fish carrier/supply boat 'Gene-2' in the international waters of high seas pocket No. 1. Purse seiners use fish aggregation devices, or FADs, to set net around, which are a highly destructive method of fishing that Greenpeace are seeking to be banned. Greenpeace is calling for a network of marine reserves to be established in four high seas pockets known as the Pacific Commons, and for these be declared off limits to fishing.
