Waters off the coast of West Africa are crowded with foreign vessels fishing both legally and illegally. They come from as far afield as Europe, Russia and Asia and are endangering the livelihoods of local fishing communities. Pavel Klinckhamers is a Greenpeace activist and he's sailing along the West African coast with local naval officials on the organisation's boat named the Esperanza. He's told BBC Newsday how the vessels have been breaching fishing rules in the region.
