Fighting on the Front Line Continues
Sea Shepard's flagship may be impounded or sold after a lawsuit was brought against them by a Malta-based fishing company, Fish and Fish Limited. The boat was on its way to the Faeroes where it was planning to disrupt an annual whale hunt that sees around 1000 of the animals killed, according to STV news.
The action is in relation to damage they allege was done to bluefin tuna fishing gear by Sea Shepherd in the Mediterranean last year.
Whether we like their methods or not, Sea Shepard is on the front lines of a battle for the health of the oceans that is both real and symbolic.
