Illegal drifter nets using was discovered in the Indian Ocean by Greenpeace
Greenpeace recently discovered illegal widespread use of drifter nets in the northwest part of the Indian Ocean. These banned nets are destroying marine life in one of the most environmentally sensitive areas in the world.
It was stated that seven ships were discovered at sea in two weeks using drift nets to hunt tuna. And eight more ships were noticed on radar, which also suggested using nets.
It is assumed that if yellowfin tuna keeps on decreasing with its current speed, then local food security, as well as the economy in the region will suffer.
Banned 30 years ago, these nets catch other marine inhabitants in addition to the fish they are intended for.
Representatives from 30 countries met last month to discuss ways to preserve quickly hunting Indian Ocean tuna stocks. The meeting ended without any new agreements.
