Dutch Trawler Carolien

Photo | 1 May, 2012

The Dutch flagged super trawler "Carolien", fishing in Mauritanian waters, 30 miles from the coast. This 110 metre giant, belongs to the Dutch Pelagic Freezer Trawler Association (PFA), and is an example of the highly industrialised EU fleets that operate in and overfish West African waters with severe impact on the fish stocks, food security and the livelihoods of local people. 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.02/27/2012
