Greenpeace and Canned Tuna Truth Squad : In Their Own Words
Numerous other marine life are hooked and netted in the global tuna fisheries with 100 million sharks, and tens of thousands of turtles killed every year causing devastation to the entire marine ecosystems.
All fishing methods, including pole and line, have challenges associated with bycatch, challenges that will increase significantly if the practice is dramatically expanded. In turn, Greenpeace exaggerates the scale of the bycatch problem. In areas of the world where reliable statistics exist, bycatch of sea turtles is reported to be only dozens with many animals being returned safely to the ocean.
