"Fishermen Attack Sea Shepherd Vessel In Gulf Of California"

"MEXICO CITY — The Sea Shepherd environmental group published a video Thursday showing an attack by about two dozen small fishing boats on the vessel Farley Mowat in Mexico’s Gulf of California.

Fishermen in the Gulf, also known as the Sea of Cortez, have long complained about environmentalists trying to protect the vaquita marina, the world’s smallest and most endangered porpoise.

Sea Shepherd said fishermen threw lead weights and tried to douse the Farley Mowat and waters around it with gasoline Wednesday."

The Associated Press had the story January 10, 2019.
