Super Trawler Caught Dumping Tons of Dead Fish

The shocking footage of 100,000 dead fish carpeting France’s Bay of Biscay, captured earlier this month by our media crew on The M/Y Age of Union, sparked international outrage.

France’s maritime minister called for the national fishing surveillance authority to launch an investigation, and the European commissioner for environment, oceans and fisheries, also said he was seeking “exhaustive information and evidence about the case.”

After the Dutch-owned super trawler F/V Margiris was immediately identified as the culprit, its spokesperson promised the “spill” was a “very rare occurrence.”

This video — with English voiceover after the subtitled introduction — shows the destruction these factory trawlers are really capable of, and why Sea Shepherd is calling for them to be banned.
