Ten fishing trawlers arrested for illegal fishing along the coast of The Gambia

Victory for the Oceans! Covert nighttime operations arrest ten poachers in Africa!

The Gambia’s waters are rich in biodiversity, making them a hotspot for illegal fishing operations.

Thanks to your support, the Sam Simon and its crew have been working with local authorities to defend, conserve and protect these waters, and our most recent patrol has resulted in one of our biggest success’ in African waters.

Over the course of a week, ten trawlers were arrested, meaning that their illegal nets will no longer bring destruction to these waters.

For the Oceans.
