Made in Taiwan - shocking!

This report really beggars belief.

Or maybe not so much.
It is a shocking compendium of systemic widespread poaching and shark finning (nothing new there - and here!), and appalling human abuses all the way to the well documented but never properly investigated murder at sea that made the rounds two years ago. The perpetrators remain largely unpunished as the Taiwanese authorities don't seem to give a shit - and those Taiwanese distant water fleets are still being allowed by the various Tuna RFMOs to ply their nefarious trade unscathed.
Press coverage here.

Required reading.
And bravo Greenpeace for having exposed this abomination!
