Greenpeace activists aboard inflatables hold banners reading "Not Here, Not Anywhere" and escort the FV Margiris super trawler (aka 'Abel Tasman') out of Port Melbourne. According to the UN, the global industrial fishing fleet is 2.5 times too big for fish stocks to sustain. Despite this, Parlevliet & Van der Plas, the Dutch owner of the Margiris, is subsidised by the European Union. The company pocketed up to 25 million euros between 2006 and 2011. Note: In late 2012, the Margiris was renamed 'Abel Tasman.'
