January: Sea Shepherd challenges the government of Norway to prosecute the Sea Shepherd crew responsible for sinking the Norwegian whaler Nybraena. Norway refuses to respond. Paul Watson’s book Earthforce! An Earth Warrior’s Guide to Strategy is published 
March: A Sea Shepherd supporter documents the illegal killing of an orca whale in the Bering Sea by the U.S.-registered fishing factory vessel the Northern Hawk. The documentation is turned over to U.S. authorities.
March: The Edward Abbey is re-registered as a Canadian research vessel and given the name Sirenian.
April: The Sirenian travels to Clayoquot Sound on Vancouver Island to open a summer of controversial protest against the clear-cutting of the magnificent Clayoquot valley.
May: Captain Watson purchases the retired Canadian Coast Guard icebreaker the ThomasCarletonin Halifax, Nova Scotia. The ship is renamed the Cleveland Amory. The ship requires three months to make ready for sea.
July: The Cleveland Amory departs Halifax for a voyage to the Grand Banks off Newfoundland for the purpose of obstructing illegal fishing activities. Upon arrival on the Tail of the Banks outside of Canadian waters, the Cleveland Amory is met by Canadian government vessels and police and shadowed closely. Captain Watson is very much aware that he and his crew are under surveillance when he orders the Cuban drag trawler Rio Las Casas to pull up her nets and return to Havana. The Cuban complies but is informed by the Canadian 
Department of Fisheries that the Cleveland Amory has no authority to give such an order. Captain Watson retaliates by pulling alongside the Cuban trawler and instructing his crew to toss stink bombs onto the deck of the Rio Las Casas. Captain Watson then cuts the trawl. The Cubans retreat from the Banks. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police inform Captain Watson that he is under arrest. He ignores the order and makes a course to the Nose of the Banks where he orders a Spanish dragger off the Banks. The political controversy results in ten Cuban drag trawlers departing the Banks and returning to Cuba. Their reported losses exceed thirty five million dollars. The Mounted Police respond by boarding the Cleveland Amory and arresting Captain Watson outside the two-hundred mile limit. Captain Watson is charged with three counts of criminal mischief and the Cleveland Amory is brought into St. John’s Newfoundland under guard.




August: To avoid the harassment and bureaucratic obstacles involved in getting the Cleveland Amory released, Captain Watson sells the ship to a private buyer. In this manner, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society avoids the payment of $30,000 in fines imposed by the Canadian government and walks away with more money than originally invested.

Law and Order: Does This Man Belong in the Hoosegow?



Outside magazine, December 1995

Law and Order: Does This Man Belong in the Hoosegow?

The continuing saga of Paul Watson, eco-pirate
By John Alderman



Having stared down the barrels of Japanese guns," says a defiant Paul Watson, "being on trial didn't really scare me." Watson, the 45-year-old Canadian founder of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society and a proponent of all manner of high-seas high jinks, is referring to his trial last October in Newfoundland for endangering lives and property in an attack on a Cuban fishing vessel. After three weeks of testimony and 16 hours of tense deliberation by a jury, Watson was acquitted of major charges. Despite the not-guilty verdict, however, the government made one thing quite clear: It does not intend to stand by any longer while Watson rams, sabotages, and otherwise harasses anyone he deems an eco-offender. Had he been found guilty, he might have spent the rest of his life behind bars. (Watson was sentenced to 30 days in prison on a lesser charge of "criminal mischief.")

For Watson, the legal troubles started two and a half years ago in international waters off Newfoundland's Tail of the Grand Banks. While captaining the Cleveland Amory,the 185-foot Sea Shepherd flagship, Watson and his crew came upon the Rio Las Casasharvesting endangered redfish. The Rio's crew wasn't breaking any laws, but Watson nonetheless ordered it to cease. Not surprisingly, the Rio ignored the request. So Watson allegedly headed for the Rio's stern in hopes of fouling its nets. (The Rio's crew claims it was rammed; Watson denies any physical contact.) Unfortunately for Watson, Canadian police were watching the whole thing from aboard the Sir Wilfred Grenfell.The following day, they boarded the Cleveland Amory and arrested its captain.

So how did Watson beat the rap in a land where he is demonized for helping to end commercial seal hunting? The answer may have something to do with the current invasion of foreign fishing boats. In the middle of a three-year ban on cod fishing in Canadian waters, locals cringe at the thought of others plucking fish from nearby international waters.
"I would have thrown Watson down a blowhole a few years ago, but now I stand behind him," says one fisherman. "If it had been me at the helm of the Cleveland Amory, I would have run that poacher down."

Ironically, Watson's newfound friendship with the people of Newfoundland may not last. The Canadian government is considering allowing commercial seal hunting this spring, and Watson says he will return to do battle. "I would have to," the captain explains. "It's 1995--you just can't go out and bash baby seals to death any longer."

MAURITANIANS SEIZE CUBAN FISHING BOAT
Date:
1977 November 15, 00:00 (Tuesday)



1. SUMMARY: CUBAN FISHING BOAT AND CREW SEIZED NOVEMBER 9 FOR VIOLATIONS OF MAURITANIAN FISHING WATERS, CONTINUE TO BE HELD IN NOUADHIBOU. MAURITANIANS HAVE TENTATIVELY LEVIED 60 MILLION OUGUIYA FINE (APPROXIMATELY 1.3 MILLION DOLLARS) ON TRAWLER. END SUMMARY.




2. ON NOVEMBER 9 MAURITANIAN NAVAL SHIP STOPPED CUBAN FISHING TRAWLER "RIO MAYABEQUE", APPROXIMATELY 25 MILES OFF MAURITANIAN COAST NEAR NOUADHIBOU. AFTER CUBAN TRAWLER DID NOT HEED FIRST MAURITANIAN WARNING TO STOP, MAURITANIAN SHIP FIRED SHOT ACROSS BOW. MAURITANIANS BOARDED TRAWLER, AND THEN ESCORTED IT TO LIMITED OFFICIAL USE LIMITED OFFICIAL USE PAGE 02 NOUAKC 02668 160324Z NOUADHIBOU HARBOR WHERE IT REMAINS IN CUSTODY. CUBAN TRAWLER IS IN 6,000 TON RANGE WITH CREW OF 92. MAURITANIANS CHARGED CUBAN TRAWLER WITH THREE VIOLATIONS: (1) TRAWLER DID NOT HALT WHEN FIRST HAILED TO BY MAURITANIAN NAVY; (2) CUBAN FISHING TRAWLER CARRIED NETS WITH MESH OF 60 MILLIMETERS, A MESH TOO FINE BY MAURITANIAN FISHING REGULATIONS, AND (3) MAURITANIANS CHARGE (ON BASIS SHIP'S LOG) THAT CUBAN SHIP ENTERED AND LEFT MAURITANIAN TERRITORIAL WATERS SEVERAL TIMES DURING JULY 1977 AND THAT TRAWLER WAS FISHING WITHOUT MAURITANIAN LICENSE DURING THESE JULY INCURSIONS INTO MAURITANIAN WATERS.



3. CUBAN CHARGE D'AFFARIES IN ALGIERS, JORGE CUBILES, FLEW TO NOUADHIBOU END OF LAST WEEK TO BEGIN NEGOTIATIONS FOR RELEASE OF TRAWLER AND CREW. BECAUSE OF LANGUAGE DIFFICULTIES AND HIS LACK OF UNDERSTANDING OF MAURITANIAN REGULATIONS, CUBAN REPRE- SENTATIVE SOUGHT ASSISTANCE OF SPANISH CONSUL IN NOUADHIBOU AND SPANISH EMBASSY IN NOUAKCHOTT. CUBAN CHARGE SPENT NOVEMBER 12-13 AND MORNING OF 14 IN NOUAKCHOTT DISCUSSING SEIZURE WITH MAURI- TANIAN GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS AND WAS SCHEDULED TO BEGIN NEGOTIA- TIONS AFTERNOON OF NOVEMBER 14 IN NOUADHIBOU.



4. ACCORDING TO SPANISH EMBOFF, CUBAN CAPTAIN STATES HE HAD JUST DELIVERED 200,000 EMPTY FISH-PACKING CASES TO OTHER CUBAN FISHING BOATS AND WAS LYING OFF MAURITANIA FOR RENDEZVOUS WITH ANOTHER CUBAN FISHING BOAT. CAPTAIN STATES THAT RIO MAYABEQUE NORMALLY SUPPLIES CUBAN SHIPS FISHING OFF ANGOLAN COAST WITH PACKING CASES AND OTHER FISHING EQUIPMENT, AND WAS EN ROUTE TO ANGOLA AFTER HAVING BEEN REPAIRED AND TAKEN ON EQUIPMENT IN LAS PALMAS. CAPTAIN CLAIMS CUBAN TRAWLER WAS NOT FISHING. (MAURITANIANS HAVE NOT ACCUSED CUBANS OF FISHING DURING NOVEMBER INCURSION AND ARE IN FACT SUSPICIOUS BECAUSE HOLDS CONTAINED NO FISH.) CUBAN CAPTAIN DECLARED HE DID NOT OBEY INITIAL COMMAND BECAUSE HE DID NOT RECOGNIZE HAILING SHIP AS OFFICIAL MAURITANIAN LIMITED OFFICIAL USE LIMITED OFFICIAL USE PAGE 03 NOUAKC 02668 160324Z PATROLBOAT. SPANISH EMBOFF OBSERVED IT IS QUITE POSSIBLE THAT CREW OF 92 WOULD BE NORMAL FOR 6,000 TON BOAT. SPANISH EMBOFF NOTED THAT PROPOSED FINE OF 60 MILLION OUGUIYAS IS NOT UNIUALLY HIGH SINCE MAURITANIANS OFTEN PROPOSE 20 MILLION OUGUIYA FINE FOR VIOLATIONS BY SMALL SPANISH FISHING BOATS; AFTER NEGOTIATIONS FINE IS USUALLY SETTLED AT 3-4 MILLION OUGUIYA RANGE).



5. COMMENT: MAURITANIANS REMAIN SUSPICIOUS OF PURPOSE OF CUBAN "FISHING" BOAT WHICH HAD NO FISH, MANNED BY OVERSIZE CREW, APPREHENDED CLOSE TO MAURITANIAN SHORE. MAURITANIANS HAVE PERIODICALLY REITERATED BELIEF THAT CUBANS ARE TRAINING AND FIGHTING WITH POLISARIO. THEY HAVE FREQUENTLY EXPRESSED CONCERN THAT POLISARIO MAY STRIKE FROM SEA. FOREIGN MINISTRY OFFICIAL CONFIRMED SEIZURE OF CUBAN SHIP AND FACT OF NEGOTIATIONS BETWEEN FISHERIES MINISTRY AND CUBAN REPRESENTATIVE FROM ALGIERS. CUBAN SHIP AND CREW MAY BE IN NOUADHIBOU FOR SOME TIME. KEY GIRM OFFICIALS ARE ABROAD OR PREOCCUPIED WITH OTHER ASPECTS OF SAHARA DISPUTE; JUNIORS CANNOT DECIDE MATTER OF THIS KING. MAURITANIANS MAY ALSO HOPE TO EXPLOIT CUBAN CONNECTION OF POLITICAL/PR PURPOSES. HANDYSIDE
