Watch the Distressing Footage that Shocked the Minister
Shocking footage of Whales caught in fishing net!
Earlier this month, whilst patrolling the waters of Gabon for illegal fishing activity, the crew of the Bob Barker documented 2 endangered Humpback
Whales caught in the net of a Tuna fishing vessel.
Despite being required by law to stop fishing in order to free the whales, the ship tightened its net, nearly killing them!
Watch the shocking footage above, and see why the Gabonese Minister of Fisheries, Maganga-Moussavou sanctioned the vessel and joined the Sea Shepherd ship, the Bob Barker, on its next fisheries patrol.
