West Saharan Fish in Swedish Products

Published onsdag 10 mars 2010 kl 11.31
Omega-3 capsules sold in Sweden

Swedish Television reports that fish from the occupied Western Sahara is being sold in Omega-3 supplements in Swedish healthfood stores.

Morocco occupied the territory as Spain ended its colony there in 1975. Since then the Polisario Front has been fighting for independence.

According to the program “Uppdrag Granskning”, Swedish fishermen are selling their fishing rights here and registering their boats outside the EU, in order to fish in off the Western Sahara.

The program says the most controversial aspect is not that the fishing is done in an occupied zone, but rather that protein desperately needed by the local population is being exported to Scandinavia.
