  • Published 1 year ago

The valuable marine assets of a portion of the world's poorest individuals are being focused by mechanical scale privateer angling operations, to encourage the fish hungry markets of Europe and Asia.

In an exceptional two-section examination, People and Power embarks to recognize and uncover some of those included in the multi-million dollar exchange and to look specifically at its results for the ruined West African country of Sierra Leone.

In the first part, journalist Juliana Ruhfus and maker Orlando von Einsiedel take to the oceans off Sierra Leone with a NGO, the Environmental Justice Foundation (EJF), which has been attempting to bring to light these issues.

In the second part of Pirate Fishing, the character of one of the trawlers is uncovered and in a nail gnawing peak, the skipper and team are gone up against with the confirmation of their wrongdoings.
