A Calm Day on Patrol in Liberia
Captain Alistair Allan of Sea Shepherd’s M/Y Sam Simon describes how Liberian waters have recovered from overfishing thanks to the successful partnership with the Liberian Coast Guard to stop the scourge of illegal fishing in their sovereign waters. “When I compare the wildlife to when I was first here to now, the pods of dolphins, the schools of tuna are so much more ample,” says Captain Allan. “What that means is that for the 33,000 Liberians who depend on local artisanal fishing, their life is returning to normal; they’re seeing fish in their nets once again.”
