Commentary by Sea Shepherd Founder, Captain Paul Watson

This is an accurate description of yesterday’s interception by the Australian government of the toothfish-poaching vessel Kunlun:

They arrived.

They saw.

They observed.

They determined the ship Kunlun was in Australian territorial waters.

Therefore, they took action.

They boarded the Kunlin – and one-upped the Kiwis.

They found evidence of illegal fishing in Australian Antarctic territorial waters.

They saw a large supply of illegally caught toothfish.

They discovered the vessel was flying a false flag.

They determined it was an undocumented ship, illegally flying the flag of Equatorial Guinea and loaded with tons of fish caught in Australian Antarctic territorial waters.

So of course they let them go.

Say what?????

Commentary by Sea Shepherd Founder, Captain Paul Watson

The two Equatorial Guinea-flagged poachers, Yongding and Kunlun, that the New Zealand Navy allowed to escape last month have been found again by the Sea Shepherd ship, Sam Simon.

The poachers were found fishing with impunity only 50 miles offshore from Australia’s Mawson Research Station, in waters claimed by Australia.

When Sea Shepherd Captain Sid Chakravarty radioed them to cease and desist their illegal fishing activities, the Yongding turned onto a collision course with the Sam Simon. Unintimidated, Captain Chakravarty refused to yield, forcing the Yongding to turn away when only 10 metres from the Sam Simon and to flee northward.

Sea Shepherd has responded to news that Australian customs have boarded the Interpol-wanted poaching vessel, Kunlun, commending border patrol for their action, and calling on the arrest of the wanted poaching vessel.

The Kunlun was intercepted west of Cocos Island (Keeling) yesterday. Sea Shepherd suspects the vessel was en route from the Antarctic to Southeast Asia to offload its illegal catch.

Today, the Sea Shepherd ship, Bob Barker, tripled the record for the longest sea chase of a poaching vessel, marking its 63rd day of pursuit of the Interpol-wanted, Nigerian-flagged toothfish poaching vessel, Thunder.

The previous record was held by the Australian patrol vessel, Southern Supporter, which pursued the Uruguayan vessel, Viarsa 1, for 21 days in 2003.

The milestone comes just one day after the Bob Barker logged the second full month since it first intercepted the Thunder on the Banzare Bank in Antarctica.

Commentary by Sea Shepherd founder, Captain Paul Watson

Since mid-December, 2014, the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society has been engaged in shutting down the illegal operations of four Antarctic toothfish poaching ships.

The Sea Shepherd ship Bob Barker located the Nigerian-flagged poacher Thunder on December 16th on the Banzare Bank off the coast of Antarctica. The poachers immediately dropped their nets and fled as the Bob Barker gave chase. Almost 50 days later, after a chase of over three thousand miles, Sea Shepherd continues to chase the Thunder in what is now historically the longest pursuit of a poacher on the high seas. The chase continues and is now taking place some 700 miles off the coast of South Africa.
