The Sea Shepherd ship the Steve Irwin has been impounded in Shetland pending the payment of a large bond. This action has been instigated by a Maltese company that Sea Shepherd believes is illegally fishing for bluefin tuna. Sea Shepherd released 800 of the fish last year that the company claim belonged to them.
I know some of you have no time for Paul Watson and will be delighted to see him lose his ship, but I also know that not everyone on here feels like this. If you feel that Sea Shepherd's work is important then you might want to consider making a donation on the Sea Shepherd site to help pay this bond.
