File: Three dead minke whales, illegally slaughtered, on the deck  of the Nisshin maru. The Australian Government has footage similar to  this but is refusing to release to the public. Photo: Tim WattersOn the 7th of December 2015, Sea Shepherd Australia Limited instructed EDO NSW to submit a Freedom of Information (FOI) request to the Australian Department of Immigration and Border Protection seeking photographs and video footage of Japanese whaling in the Southern Ocean in 2008.

In 2008, the Australian Customs patrol vessel Oceanic Viking along with A319 aerial surveillance flights, documented the killing of whales in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary in Antarctica. Limited photo and video evidence of the illegal killing of Minke whales was initially released to the media by Australian authorities but subsequent attempts to access the full range of evidence gathered have been denied.

Sea Shepherd Launches Operation Albacore

Operation AlbacoreThe Sea Shepherd ship, Bob Barker, has arrived in the Republic of Gabon for the commencement of Operation Albacore, a new campaign to tackle illegal, unregulated and unreported (IUU) fishing, under the direction of the Government of Gabon.

Throughout the 2016 tuna fishing season, Gabonese marines (Marine Nationale) and officers with the Fisheries Enforcement Agency (ANPA) will be stationed on-board the Bob Barker, working alongside Sea Shepherd crew to patrol Gabon's sovereign waters. These patrols will provide a vehicle for law enforcement to defend, conserve and protect critical tuna habitat in Central West Africa from April through to September 2016.

Sea Shepherd, The Wilderness Society take the fight for the Bight to BP’s doorstep.

As BP held its annual general meeting in London on April 14, Sea Shepherd, The Wilderness Society, and the Great Australian Bight Alliance took the fight to save the Great Australian Bight to BP’s doorstep.

Photo: Aaron StevensonCoordinated protests in Australia and the United Kingdom took place as BP’s shareholders met, with a mock oil spill held at the organisation’s head office in Melbourne, and a giant inflatable whale installed outside the AGM in London. The protests were held in opposition to BP’s plans to drill for oil in the Great Australian Bight. Celebrity supporter Clive Standen of hit TV series Vikings attended the London event to show his support.

"We have come to the annual general meeting to tell BP it has no right to risk the pristine waters of the Great Australian Bight, and that the opposition to its plans is growing in Australia and around the world." said Wilderness Society National Director Lyndon Schneiders. “This fight is the southern hemisphere’s equivalent of stopping Shell drilling in the Arctic.”

On the other side of the world later today there will also be a protest at BP’s annual general meeting in London. BP’s plans for the Bight have also been targeted by two recent protests in London calling for the British Museum to end its BP sponsorship deal.

“We are here to tell BP it has no right to risk the pristine waters of the Great Australian Bight, and that the opposition to its plans is growing in Australia and around the world,” said Wilderness Society South Australia Director Peter Owen.

Photo: Eliza MuirheadThe 6 illegal fishing vessels of the FU YUAN YU fleet are now in China and the final investigation into their fisheries crimes is now in the hands of the Chinese authorities. Over the last 3 months, Sea Shepherd has provided the authorities with undeniable proof of this fleet’s engagement in illegal fishing with their operations violating 11 different International regulations and Chinese law.

Sea Shepherd has offered to hand over the evidence in this case, comprising of 4 kilometres of driftnet, marking beacons, physical sightings, in addition to eye-witnesses, photographs and log-book entries, to the Chinese authorities. However, the offer has been turned down by the authorities who have instead decided to undertake a private investigation.

Illegal Chinese Vessel Fu Yuan Yu 076 Inside Chinese Port Limits

Sea Shepherd Urges Government to Arrest the Vessel.

The Fu Yuan Yu 076 has been documented actively engaged in the destruction of evidence with relation to its illegal fishing gear, in blatant violation of Chinese law. Photo: Tim WattersOn March 29, 2016 at 2027 UTC, the illegal fishing vessel Fu Yuan Yu 076 entered the port of Zhuhai in Guangdong Province in position 22 Degrees 02 Minutes (North); 113 Degrees 04 Minutes (East).

This is the second attempt made by the vessel in as many days to call a port after trying to enter Xincun harbour yesterday, and the first instance in which the vessel is well inside of China's jurisdictional control.

Sea Shepherd’s Flagship, Steve Irwin, which is in pursuit of the poaching vessel, has reported the Fu Yuan Yu 076’s position to the Chinese government, providing authorities with an immediate opportunity to arrest and investigate the vessel.

Queensland Fisheries secretly considering the use of smart drum lines within the Great Barrier Reef

Smart drum lines in use in NSW. Photo: Sea Shepherd AustraliaThe Queensland Fisheries Minister, Leanne Donaldson has revealed in a letter to Independent MP, Peter Wellington, that the Department has requested a permit for additional drum lines in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park for the potential future trialing of new technology such as smart drum lines.

The requested permit however, raises concerns, as there would be no need to permanently increase fishing effort within the Great Barrier Reef to trial smart drum lines and the Minister’s Office has advised that there are no current plans for the use of smart drum lines.

Three dead, protected Minke Whales on the deck of the Nisshin Maru. Photo: Tim WattersIn a statement released today, the Institute for Cetacean Research (ICR), the body behind the Japanese government’s whaling program, announced the return of the Japanese whaling fleet from its Antarctic slaughter.

It is the first time that the Japanese whalers have returned to the Southern Ocean to slaughter whales since the International Court of Justice (ICJ) ruled its whaling program to be illegal in 2014.

The statement confirmed that 333 whales, including a number of pregnant females, have been harpooned in Antarctic waters by the whalers since December.
