Airship Flies Over Beautiful Juneau, Alaska to Protect the Bering Sea

Video | July 16, 2013

Greenpeace's 105-foot thermal airship, A.E. Bates, flew over Juneau, Alaska while the North Pacific Fishery Management Council was meeting to decide whether or not to protect the world's largest underwater canyons in the Bering Sea.. The North Pacific Council is the governing body that decides how much fish is caught in Alaskan waters and what protection measures need to be taken.

Despite the ecological and economic importance of this stretch of ocean, the increasing threat of climate change, and the uncertainty involved in managing these fisheries, there are no areas protected from fishing along the entire shelf break. That must change.
