French Driftnetters Beware

After more than two months at sea, our catamaran – the Ranger – has documented dozens of illegal Italian driftnetters…and we’ve got the footage to prove it! Watch the video.

We’ve worked closely with the Italian Coast Guard and – thanks to our tips – many of these vessels have been arrested.

But Italians aren’t the only ones using these massive illegal nets to scoop up fish and other creatures, like dolphins and whales. Now we’re headed out to catch French driftnetters in the act. Stand by for more excitement from the Mediterranean.
