Aggressor Poachers
Victim Research Vessel
Description MEXICO: On 9 January, a ship from an environmental NGO was conducting a patrol in the Vaquita Refuge in the Upper Gulf of California, and had recovered three illegal gillnets that morning. In the early afternoon, the crew noticed approximately 35 skiffs operating inside the refuge. At this point, one of the skiffs began circling the NGO vessel which was soon joined by the remainder of other skiffs. The NGO vessel was ambushed and overwhelmed by more than 35 skiffs, many containing gillnets. The poachers attacked by hurling lead weights, anchors, trash, dead fish and even Tabasco sauce at the vessel and its wheelhouse windows in addition to threatening ship's crew with Molotov cocktails, spraying gasoline at the ship and pouring gas in the sea around the vessel. Poachers then dropped an illegal gillnet in front of the bow of the moving vessel in an attempt to foul the ship's propellers. Five poachers then boarded the ship and looted items from the vessel's deck while it was temporarily immobilized. Mexican Navy sailors and Gendarmeria stationed onboard the vessel were under strict orders not to fire. The captain of the vessel managed to restart the engines after the propeller fouling and headed to the Port of San Felipe where the ship was met by the regional Navy Commander and reinforcements.
