THE PROBLEM OF ILLEGAL FISHING


Pirate Fishing in Sierra Leone
This interactive presentation of an Al Jazeera investigation of illegal fishing in the waters of Sierra Leone just scratches the surface of the problem.
TPB Note: I was the CFO of an international fishing company in the 1970s and have maintained my interest in the problems of fisheries since then. I worked for a company called Continental Seafoods Inc. a US based company with shrimp fishing operations, processing plants and marketing in more than 26 jurisdictions. While we operated to very high standards, I learned a lot about the operators that had scant regard for the law, or morality of any sort.
This story was filmed around 2014, almost 40 years since I had my own personal experiences in these waters. Sadly fisheries governance around the African coast has deteriorated wather than improved since the 1970s. Where there are opportunities for profit, there are also incentives for corruption and the buying of influence.
Telling the story is a start, but what follow up has their been? In my experience, the story is not enough, and I would expect that the realityon the ground has not changed at all for the better.
