"In August, the same fleet was found with 300 tonnes of fish, mostly sharks including endangered hammerhead sharks, in the Galapagos national park."

And yet they were allowed to remain at sea and continue to rape and pillage - perhaps I'm missing something but suggests penalties or the legal system doesnt suppot=rt the enforcement agencies - no point catching them if they arent permanently removed from the oceans.

An excellent outcome but must be followed with harsh penalties otherwise it was a waste of time.
Work is what i do to pay for fishing!!
