During the Operation Dolphin ByCatch on the Atlantic Coast of France, Sea Shepherd has brought awareness to the mass killing of dolphins and reported what has been happening in the Atlantic French Ocean.An average of 6,000 dolphins are killed each year on France’s west coast by large industrial trawlers and fishing vessels. That number could be as high as 10,000 according to the Pelagis Observatory, based in La Rochelle. Most of the dolphins trapped and drowned as bycatch die in the nets or onboard the fishing vessels. On the boat I’ve found a floating community of people that dedicate their lives to defend the ocean. This could sounds idealistic, but they live the life they want, fighting for environmental reasons, with the dream to make the world a better place.Their family is the crew, their house is the boat, sometimes they miss a place to call home, where to take their shoes off, but they love the ocean and their mission, to them it’s a fair trade.
