Jim Wickens is a UK citizen and a veteran environmental journalist and investigative reporter. Jim has worked all over the world, and broke the story of how dolphins were being used for shark bait in illegal long line fishing in Peru. In OCEAN WARRIORS, Jim investigates illegal fishing in Palau, Thailand, and Indonesia. Jim does a deep dive into the tragic domain of ‘sea slaves’ in the outlaw ocean world of distant ocean fishing. Jim meets the Indonesian Minister of Fisheries in Jakarta, who likens the illegal fishing operators to a “terrorist organization”. Jim also interviews the president of Palau who is ordering that illegal fishing vessels caught plundering Palau’s territorial waters be destroyed.
