In 'Epic' Chase, Sea Shepherd Vows to Pursue Poachers to 'Ends of the Earth'

Deirdre Fulton, staff writer

The international marine wildlife conservation organization Sea Shepherd is engaged in "epic" pursuit of an alleged poaching vessel in the Southern Ocean, about 2,300 nautical miles from South Africa, or about 80 nautical miles outside of Australian Antarctic waters.

The dramatic chase, which has gone on for 22 days, is thought to be the world's longest sea chase of an illegal fishing vessel.
