The Great New Zealand Fishing Scandal

The Great New Zealand Fishing Scandal exposes the use of foreign factory trawlers by large NZ companies and Iwi to catch their fish quota. 45% of all Deepsea quota is caught by foreign boats. Paying third world wages to their crews,these foreign boats are having a devastating impact on the NZ domestic fishing fleet whose numbers have dropped by over 50% in the last 10 years. This documentary also exposes the immoral fishing practices of these foreign boats that deprive NZ fishermen of catching what is arguably their own fish. Using these boats is depriving the NZ economy, and therefore all New Zealanders, of hundreds of millions of dollars a year. This documentary will shock and anger all New Zealanders.
