    In the summer of 1990 Sea Shepherd Conservation Society tracks down, confronts and disables a Japanese drift netting operation 1400 miles due north of Hawaii.

    The Japanese government was invited to press charges against Sea Shepherd for ramming and destroying drift netting machinery on two of the three Japanese vessels. No charges were ever laid. In fact, the Japanese government denied they even had a drift netting operation and denied this incident ever took place.
    This incredible footage proves otherwise.

    Sea Shepherd is not a protest organization. It was established in 1977 to intervene against the illegal exploitation of marine life in accordance with the principles of the United Nations World Charter for Nature.

    "We have never injured a single person in our 31 year history," said Captain Watson, "and we intend to keep that record unblemished."
