Tuna destroyer



The Spanish owned and EU flagged tuna purse seiner "Albatun Tres" a 115 m, 3,200 GRT 'super, super seiner' that can net 3,000 tonnes of tuna in a single fishing trip. This is almost double the entire annual catch of some Pacific island countries. If the EU allows this, what hope is there for the world's fish and our marine ecosystems?
