Deep sea slaughter aboard a Chinese longliner

As the Esperanza continues on her 'Defending Our Pacific Expedition' the crew were yesterday invited to board the Chinese Longliner: 'Jing Lu Yuan No005'. From above the ship's crew were seen hurriedly stuffing dried sharks' fins on deck to hide below, and on board they witnessed a freezer hold full of tuna as well as evidence of by catch. All around the world, our oceans are in crisis. Our appetite for fish is threatening to overwhelm the ocean's ecology, while the slaughter of whales and industrial fishing methods are destroying endangered species.
