Gordon Ramsay threatened at gunpoint during illegal fishing investigation


www.telegrap h.co.uk

Ramsay, 44, travelled to Costa Rica to uncover the illicit trade in shark fins as part of Channel 4’s Big Fish Fight series.

He said: “It is a multibillion dollar industry, completely unregulated. We traced some of the biggest culprits to Costa Rica. The day before we got there, a Taiwanese crew landed a haul of hammerhead sharks – police searched the boat and found bails of coc aine.

“These gangs operate from places that are like forts, with barbed-wire perimeters and gun towers.

This really surprised me, I know its by no means “big news” but first time i have ever heard of a illegal fishing gang as serious as this. For those of you who don’t know Gordon Ramsay is a former Rangers footballers turned UK celebrity chef and TV personality. He was investigating illegal fishing for a new TV documentary and you can find the rest in the attached article.

That is quite interesting I have heard of things like this happening in Japan ala The Cove kind of things. But nothing like shark gangs. Perhaps they were just looking for him to make some fish and chips...yes small joke. Thanks for the info though.

Priceless! I had the same voice in my head (Ramsay's) when I was reading the OP. Dude can swear like a BEAST, gotta love that!

Also, is this really that big of a surprise? Part of human nature seems to want forbidden things. It seems to me that whenever something is illegal or banned, interest in said item/thing seems to rise. Additionally, you will have "entrepreneurs" that recognize this and take steps to ensure they can profit on these items/things/activities.

A van pulled up and these seedy characters made us stand against the wall. The police came and advised us to leave the country.


WTF? You got some thugs pointing guns at people and the people are being told told to leave the country, by the police!


I wonder when the show's going to aired?

i doubt the guns are there for the fishing but to the fishermans other income smuggling. in my area the local fishermen go out and meet fishing trawlers from mexico and on there way back in throw the contraband over the side with a crab pot float then local drug dealer goes out that nigh and pulls up thefloat and takes it back to private dock i have seen this happen several times.

He's the dude that does

*HELLS KITCHEN* here in America

for those who are still out of the loop...

Why don't he stick to cooking gooses, fish and chicken.

Get his hand out of the proverbial pot so to say and LEAVE FISHERMAN ALONE!!

Plenty of fish in the sea

MORE REGULATION WILL NOT STOP IT!!

The Japanese whalers get my respect

NO REASON IF PEOPLE WANT WHALE MEAT CAN'T EAT IT

THERE ARE MILLIONS OF WHALES!!

I don't eat whale but I would not stop a man from eating it if
he so wishes.

I doubt theirs millions mate,they certainly dont get my respect!


According to Greenpeace.org, the West Pacific grey whale population is the most endangered in the world. It hovers on the edge of extinction with just over 100 remaining.

Humpback whales currently number only 20,000.

A 2002 report estimated there were 5,000 to 12,000 Blue Whales worldwide.

Not for these guys there isn't


I for one sorely hope the Cthulhu comes back and drags their fish happy butts right to the bottom of the Ocean. Plenty more people in the world after all

Well that would be the ONLY reason not to eat whale.

Other then that I don't see the problem in it except if

what some of you are saying is true the low amount.

Still I don't think it's wrong to eat whales...

Anyways off topic..

Back on topic I like Gordon Ramsay as a CHEF

He is entertaining and i'm sure what he is cooking taste great..

Just I don't know where the guy gets off that he needs to be investigating

fish tales... My 50 cents

If they could have whale farms I think that would be great just don't think they would
breed very well in captivity.
