We present to you a case of Homo sapiens being absolutely insapiens. And an unexpected surprise too.

We humans (Homo insapiens) are totally mad! This is what we are doing to the world´s oceans:

One billion people rely on fish as an important source of protein. - WWF

As many as 90 per cent of all the ocean's large fish have been fished out. - WWF

one per cent of the world's Industrial fishing fleets account for 50 per cent of the world's catches. - CNN

Government subsidies of over $15 billion a year play a major role in creating the worlds fishing fleets.- WWF

The global fishing fleets are 250 per cent larger than the oceans can sustainably support.- WWF

Only 0.6 per cent of the worlds oceans are designated as protected.- WWF

A Greenpeace report states that 40 per cent of the worlds oceans should be placed in nature reserves. - MSNBC

In 2004, 13,000 new marine species were discovered, according to the Census of Marine Life. - Census of Marine Life

Japan has caught $6 billion worth of illegal Southern Bluefin tuna over the past 20 years. - Australian Broadcasting Corporation

Fifteen species of sharks have seen their numbers drop by 50 per cent in the last 20 years. - National Geographic

Illegal fishing is worth up to $9 billion a year. - Illegal Fishing.info

Troubled Waters.


Simple. Do not be part of this madness at the end of the human consumption chain at the stores. 

Do not consume Bluefins or overfished fish from narco-fishing fleets.

Yes. If you dig deep into this mess you will be surprised to find that the fishing industry is now part of the world´s transnational mafia.

Fishing companies have been penetrated by the organised crime and are using fishing or overfishing to do heavy laundering money. They use thousands of phantom firms conveniently registered in tax havens for this purpose.

Putting aside the exceptions, the fishing industry - in cahoots with the container shipping industry which has also been infiltrated by the mafia - is implicated in the following illegal activities:

  • Illegal fishing,
  • Human trafficking,
  • Kidnapping humans to enslave them on fishing vessels or on fish processing plants,
  • Human jerky, human meat and organs trafficking,
  • Bushmeat trafficking,
  • Ivory trafficking,
  • Rhino horn trafficking,
  • Diamond trafficking,
  • Gold trafficking,
  • Coltan trafficking,
  • Rare earths trafficking,
  • Strategic minerals trafficking,
  • Wildlife trafficking,
  • Marine mammal parts trafficking,
  • Endangered mammal furs trafficking,
  • Illegal hunting trophies trafficking,
  • Fuel trafficking for narco-boats and narco-submarines,
  • Luxury cars and auto parts trafficking,
  • Airplane and helicopter genuine and fake parts trafficking,
  • Fake fashion clothes and shoes trafficking, 
  • Cigarettes, wines and liquors trafficking,
  • Cooking oils trafficking, 
  • Pirated video games and music CDs trafficking,
  • Pharmaceuticals and medicines trafficking,
  • Drug trafficking,
  • Industrial spying and information trafficking,
  • E-trash trafficking,
  • Toxic and radioactive residues trafficking,
  • Arms trafficking,
  • Nuclear trafficking,
  • Etc.

In a nutshell, the overfished fish smells quite fishy. Chances are that the fish you planning on having for lunch or dinner is a narco-fish.

Do you want to be part of this narco-cycle?
