Operation Icefish

Shutting down an illegal toothfish poaching fleet

Operation Icefish
Two campaigns to stop the illegal poaching of vulnerable toothfish in the Antarctic

Sea Shepherd returned to the Antarctic in 2014-2015 and 2015-2016 to shut down the Bandit 6 fleet of toothfish poachers which had been operating with impunity for more than 10 years. They avoided detection and arrest by frequently changing name and registry; and by exploiting the remoteness of the Southern Ocean "shadowlands" where monitoring and surveillance are difficult.
