Images from the Greenpeace report: Rainbow Warrior Indian Ocean Expedition 2012 - Summary of Findings. 8 September - 11 November 2012.
The Indian Ocean is the second most important tuna fishing ground in the world, with approximately 24% of the world's tuna catch. Fishing capacity in the region is already estimated to be more than what the fish stocks can sustain in the long term. Yet, many coastal states are allowing more and more vessels to enter the fisheries, using various types of gears including large-scale driftnets.

The Case Studies in our Rainbow Warrior Indian Ocean Expedition report raise a number of concerns, and highlight the urgent need for better management of fishing fleets in the region.
