This film reveals a sorry saga of illegal overfishing that has led to plummeting tuna stocks worldwide. Co-produced by tve with the Washington-based ICIJ (International Consortium for Investigative Journalists), ‘Looting the Seas’ shows how a decade of fraud involving Mediterranean fisheries, European governments and foreign dealers has helped push Atlantic bluefin stocks to the brink of exhaustion, and how the rules put in place to conserve them still don’t work effectively.
