Ban the FAD Banner in Palau

Greenpeace activists hold a banner under an illegally deployed fish aggregating device (FAD) in the exclusive economic zone of the Republic of Palau. Two FADs were confiscated by Greenpeace in conjunction with law enforcement officers from the Government of Palau. Greenpeace was on a joint surveillance operation with the Government of Palau, patrolling the Western and Central Pacific Ocean where 60% of the world's tuna comes from. The use of FADs in destructive purse seine fishing is destroying the health of the oceans.
