EU fleet exposed destroying deep sea life as UN meets to discuss protection

Date: October 18, 2004

The needless destruction of the high seas was exposed by Greenpeace this morning, after documenting a EU bottom trawler operating in the North Atlantic.

Meanwhile at the UN in New York, diplomats are talking about the protection of marine life in these international waters. A resolution on the issue is due to be tabled in early November.
