Earth Report travels the globe to document the destruction of an unlikely named species: the Patagonian toothfish. Better known as ‘bass’ on the lucrative Japanese and New York fish markets, the toothfish with its white succulent flesh makes for such good eating that it fetches astronomical prices. It is so prized that pirates, who fish for it illegally in the stormy, freezing seas around Antarctica, call it White Gold. Using hidden cameras Earth Report investigates the pirates as they hunt the fish to extinction. We track them across hundreds of kilometres of ocean revealing their tactics and documenting the cat and mouse game played by the world’s navies and the pirates as they pursue an illegal business stretching halfway around the globe.
