Maartje Theadora Action near Mauritania

Photo | 1 May, 2012

Activists hold a banner in German reading: “Stop EU Subsidised Plunder” to protest against European overfishing in Mauritanian waters. The activists have also attached symbolic Euro bank notes on the hull of the European PFA super trawler ‘Maartje Theadora’. The money represents the financial support from unknowing, European tax payer’s 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
