The ship can take 3000 tonnes of tuna in a single fishing trip which is almost double the annual catch of some Pacific island countries. Greenpeace has been highlighting the overfishing of tuna in the Pacific for the past two months.Locations:Kiribati-Pacific Islands-Phoenix IslandsDate:27 May, 2008Credit:© GreenpeaceDuration:56m39sAudio format:NaturalProduction Type :RUSHESRestrictions:ON ADMIN ONLY PURPOSE AS IT'S UNEDITED FOOTAGEKeywords:Actions and protests-Fishing (activity)-Fishing (Industry)-Fishing ships-Greenpeace activists-Greenpeace inflatables-KWCI (GPI)-Oceans (campaign title)-Overfishing-Seine fishingShoot:Defending Our Pacific MV Esperanza TourThe Greenpeace ship MV Esperanza toured in the Pacific Ocean to defend the pockets of international waters between Pacific Island countries – the Pacific Commons - as marine reserves from greedy fishing fleets intent on fishing out the world's last tuna stocks - the world's favorite fish. These mother ships, known as 'reefers', are a gateway for laundering tuna out of the region.A report was released that estimates that on top of the known fish catch, at least another 34% is stolen by pirates in the Western and Central Pacific.Scientists have been warning for years that bigeye and yellowfin tuna are suffering from overfishing. 60% of tuna eaten globally each year comes from the Pacific heading mostly to markets in Japan, the European Union and United States.Greenpeace advocates the creation of a network of marine reserves, protecting 40 per cent of the world's oceans, as the long term solution to overfishing and the recovery of our overexploited oceans.
