Operation Albacore

Our third campaign to stop illegal fishing in Gabon, West Africa

Operation Albacore III
A successful partnership to protect Africa's Eden.

In 2016, Sea Shepherd partnered with the government of Gabon to stop illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing in their coastal waters. São Tomé and Principe soon joined the campaign, resulting in the arrest of five ships operating illegally in the Gulf of Guinea. Sea Shepherd continued the campaign protecting their coastal waters in 2017 with the arrest of two illegal trawlers and a longliner. In 2018, Sea Shepherd is back to resume patrols with Gabonese authorities of Africa's largest marine protected area.
