Greenpeace — Tropical tunas at ICCAT: moving forwards or backwards?

 Shocking footage  by a whistleblower helicopter pilot who approached us with some images he had shot on a fishing vessel in the Pacific. Helicopters are often by the industry used to find tropical tunas such as yellowfin and skipjack, and also more recently to check floating objects used to attract tuna – fish aggregation devices (FADs).
The problem is that FADs catch high amounts of juvenile tuna as well as other marine life, such as sharks, rays and turtles.

FAD fishing is a widespread fishing technique
