U.K. FISHERMEN INVOLVED IN THIS BRUTAL ACT OF SHARK FINNING CRIME

In July 2019 it has been revealed via U.K. customs documents showing that 50 tons of shark fins have been exported to Spain from Britain.  In the last 2 years  that equates to 50,000 sharks brutally killed for their fins dumped back into the sea alive ,and then dying a slow agonising death.

THIS IS ILLEGAL HELP BLUE SEAS PROTECT, PLEASE SUPPORT US 

OVER FISHING

The Planet cannot sustain this level of commercial fishing with over 4 million fishing vessels ,with China having a fishing fleet 10 times the size of Russia or America , Super trawlers with trawl nets big enough to contain 13 jumbo jets who have wiped out their own fish stock and are now sweeping the oceans clean elsewhere .  China is also buying up all the Deep Sea exploration licenses, where no one has yet been, unspoilt wilderness, searching for minerals....These areas have been untouched for millenia since the dawn of earths creation...

IT MUST BE STOPPED  !

SIMPLE  WAYS FOR INDIVIDUALS TO HELP STOP OCEAN DEPLETION

1.  Eat less fish.  Allow our fish stocks to recover. 80% of fish stocks are already depleted.

2.  Eat less meat. 20-30% of all fish caught goes to cattle feed for meat production.

3. Eat vegetarian or vegan.  Plant foods are abundant and healthy and contain many vitamins, protein and some even calcium!

The boats supplying the fish we eat are killing dolphins so fast that they are heading towards extinction.

By George Monbiot, published in the Guardian 12th March 2020

How many people want dolphins killed? 

Apart from the psychopath shooting them in Florida, and the Japanese hunters slaughtering them every year in Taiji Cove, I would hazard a guess at none. They are perhaps the world’s most-loved wild animals. Yet, every day, dolphin killers form an orderly queue, at supermarket checkouts in the UK and around the world. If you are buying fish, and there is no clear and watertight guarantee, you are likely to be complicit in something that would revolt you.

A horrifying report last week shows that dolphin numbers in the Indian Ocean have fallen by some 87% since 1980, as they’ve been drowned in gillnets set for tuna. But the problem is not confined to distant seas, or to tuna fisheries. On average, two dolphins or porpoises are washed up on UK beaches every day. Many of them show the scrapes and indentations caused by fishing nets. Discoveries of dead dolphins around the Bay of Biscay this year are likely to beat the grisly record set in 2019, when 1,100 were found on the French coast. Large numbers are also turning up on the beaches of Ireland.

Not every dolphin or porpoise that washes up dead has been killed by the fishing industry. Infections are more prevalent than they were before, perhaps as a result of persistent synthetic chemicals accumulating in the animals’ tissues and suppressing their immune systems. But in many places, including the Bay of Biscay, Ireland and probably the English Channel, industrial fishing appears to be the biggest cause.

The dolphins found on the shore are likely to be a small proportion of the total killed. Most corpses sink or drift out to sea. Because the slaughter is deliberately unrecorded by European governments, we have only rough guesses about how many might be dying. One scientific estimate suggests that around one eighth of the slaughtered dolphins are likely to appear on beaches. Dolphins are long-lived and reproduce slowly. In the north Atlantic, the common dolphin calves only about once every four years. The unquantified mass slaughter caused by fishing boats, if it is allowed to continue, is likely soon to drive them to extinction.

Almost all commercial fishing presents a threat to dolphins and porpoises. But some techniques are more lethal than others. While gillnets kill large numbers of porpoises, and all kinds of trawling and purse seining endanger dolphins, there’s a particularly strong correlation between dolphin deaths and two types of fishing: pair trawlers catching bass, and supertrawlers pursuing small, midwater fish.

Pair trawlers (two boats pulling a net between them) move much faster than single trawlers. Supertrawlers – ships 100 metres or more in length – tow gigantic nets that scoop up entire shoals, and the predators hunting them. 



Pair trawlers (two boats pulling a net between them) move much faster than single trawlers. Supertrawlers – ships 100 metres or more in length – tow gigantic nets that scoop up entire shoals, and the predators hunting them. ecause these ships tend to pursue species used for making the pellets fed to farmed fish – such as salmon, bass, halibut and prawns – scarcely any species on sale today can be safely dissociated from dolphin killing. Campaigners around the coasts of Britain and Ireland connect spikes in dead dolphins with the appearance of supertrawlers.

The governments of the EU and the UK are deliberately failing to stop this massacre. They know their system for monitoring dolphin killing is useless. It consists of placing human observers on around 1% of fishing vessels, and only with the consent of the vessel master. Inevitably, the boats most responsible for the problem tend to be the least monitored. For a quarter of the price of this useless and outdated system, every boat could be fitted with remote monitoring equipment and CCTV. But they refuse to enter the 21st Century.

Last year the campaign group Sea Shepherd sailed into this regulatory chasm, and filmed a French trawler in the Bay of Biscay hauling a dead dolphin onto its deck. The official response? The president of Brittany’s fisheries committee characterised the filming as “harassment”.

Neither the European Commission nor the UK government, to judge by the current draft of the Fisheries Bill, intends to put this right. Their refusal properly to monitor or regulate the industry amounts to an intentional and systematic cover-up.

The measures required to protect dolphins are similar to the measures required to allow fish populations to recover. Large zones should be declared closed to all fishing. Instead, almost all our “marine conservation zones” can be legally ploughed by trawlers throughout the year. They are meaningless paper parks. Other areas should be closed at certain seasons, when dolphins congregate.

Fisheries policy should begin with the protection of dolphins and other vulnerable species, and then decide where and how fishing vessels can still operate. But the opposite approach is taken: allow fishing boats to work almost everywhere, unmonitored and scarcely controlled, then wonder what to do about the dead dolphins. The grip of the fishing industry on government policy remains as powerful and mysterious as ever.

Is there any difference between the accidental but inevitable mass killing of dolphins by the fishing industry, and the deliberate annual massacre in Japan, that rightly causes such public outrage? If something is morally wrong, no amount of money can make it morally right. The slaughter of dolphins and other magnificent wildlife is, on any measure, morally wrong.

If you agree, there’s a simple answer. Stop buying fish. Until the industry has been contained, and its devastating impacts ended, we should withdraw our consent. Otherwise, we too are the killers.

GIANT BLUE FIN TUNA

SCANDAL

Rome, Italy - Spanish authorities announced the arrest of 76 people involved in a large illegal trade of bluefin tuna worth over €12 million per year between Malta and Spain, and with the engagement of other EU countries. 80,000 kg of illegally caught and marketed tuna were seized in the investigation, led under the coordination of EUROPOL. Irregularities found in the conservation of the fish could also cause food poisoning.

The international investigation has discovered a large network of fishing companies and distributors that includes also one of Europe’s biggest seafood farming companies, the Ricardo Fuentes and Sons Group, based in Spain.

The investigation provides crucial information ahead of the meeting of the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT) taking place from 12 to 19 November in Croatia and where fishing nations and the EU will agree on new measures to manage the lucrative fishery of the east Atlantic and Mediterranean bluefin tuna.

Commenting on the case, Alessandro Buzzi, Bluefin Tuna Regional Manager with WWF, , said:

“It’s simply unacceptable that such a massive trade of illegal bluefin tuna involving European companies and worth millions of euros has managed to escape the controls of governments and most especially the EU institutions. Bluefin is one of the most economically valuable fish on the planet, therefore we need stronger rules and better monitoring to effectively protect the stock.

Fishing nations and the EU should take into account these unreported catches before moving forward with the planned increase of fishing quotas and any change is made to the recovery plan currently in place. We cannot let the bluefin stock crash once more.”

According to the investigation, Malta was one of the main sources of the illegal tuna that was sold and traded together with legal quantities. Here about 2.5 million kilos of undeclared tuna [1] are estimated to be sold for a total profit of €12.5 million per year. Italy was the starting point of another route: all the products came from illegal catches and were transported to Spain by road without any type of documentation and without any system of traceability and distributed to smaller businesses in the sector. French ports were used for transferring the illegal goods from Italy to Malta.

The investigation also reported several health and hygiene irregularities regarding the conservation of the fish after being caught, that could have caused food poisoning among consumers.

“All illegal seafood that reaches our plate has escaped the traceability and hygiene controls that are so important to protect our health. Tackling illegal fishing is important to protect our ocean as well as our own health.” concluded Buzzi.

[1] The 2,500,000 kilos of undeclared tuna estimated to be traded in Malta corresponds to nearly 10% of the total allowable catches for the stock for 2018.
