Greenpeace helicopter passes over the Dutch super trawler Willem Van Der Zwan, 30 miles off the coast of Mauritania to protest industrial fishing. The helicopter flies a banner reading: 'Dead End'. 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.04/09/2012
