The now infamous Dutch super trawler Margiris this morning landed on Australian shores as it docked at the harbour of Port Lincoln, South Australia. The trawler has come under intense scrutiny as Australians fear the country’s waters will be raided of marine life at unprecedented levels.

The trawler was met with confrontation from Greenpeace and the controversy surrounding its presence in Australian waters is not set to go away. Christopher Testa reports.
