"Through the Net" is a short film that charts EJF’s investigations into pirate fishing in West Africa and tracks the journey of fish caught illegally in Sierra Leone to the European seafood market through the Spanish port of Las Palmas. The film reveals gaps in the EU regulation to prevent, deter and eliminate Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) fish and highlights steps that need to be taken to ensure that the regulation works effectively.
The film features interviews with the EU Fisheries Commissioner, Members of the European Parliament and fishing communities that suffer the impacts of pirate fishing in West Africa.
The voiceover is provided by award-winning journalist and broadcaster Jonathan Dimbleby. Soundtrack by Tom Strang.
