The Kunlun was intercepted and boarded west of Cocos Island (Keeling) yesterday by Australian customs. Sea Shepherd suspects the vessel was en route from the Antarctic to Southeast Asia to offload its illegal catch.
“For the past three months, the Australian government has claimed that taking port action against toothfish poachers is more effective that patrolling. It is encouraging to see that they have changed their tune... We now need strong action from Australia to show that illegal fishing will not be tolerated in the Southern Ocean, and that the only action that will see an end to the Kunlun's poaching career is arrest and seizure at sea.” - Capt. Sid Chakravarty

Authorities, including international policing agency Interpol, were notified that the Sam Simon would be arriving in Mauritius to hand-over evidence, including the 72 kilometres of gillnets it confiscated, to aid in the prosecution of the Thunder.
“It is evident from the proceedings that Interpol has issued a request to the Mauritian authorities to help in the investigation to prosecute the Thunder. The thorough and professional approach of the Mauritian authorities proves that local and international law enforcement authorities are taking the crimes of the Thunder seriously.” - Capt. Sid Chakravarty
