Illegal fishing in the Gulf of Guinea

The Washington Post has a story on the problem of illegal fishing in the Gulf of Guinea and the assistance being provided by the US Navy to Gabonese officials.

The Post points out that Illegal fishing -- which Somalia's pirates also cite as one reason for their attacks -- strips an estimated $1 billion in yearly revenue from sub-Saharan Africa.
