Sie hat mit allen Teams, die in der Ausschreibung “Wissenschaft und Datenjournalismus” gefördert werden, gesprochen: über erreichte und verfehlte Ziele, über die unterschiedlichen Methoden und Perspektiven von Journalisten und Wissenschaftlern – und ob diese Tandems künftig verstärkt Nutz- und Erkenntniswerte für ein breites Publikum produzieren sollten.”

Spain is the most powerful fishing nation in a region where economies and fish stocks are in shambles. A team of reporters from the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists examined the Spanish fishing industry’s political influence, global reach and criminal record.

Looting the Sea I: The Black Market in Bluefin Tuna

In Archive, Stories on November 7, 2010 at 2:09 pm

For seven months, the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists deployed a team of 12 reporters to investigate the bluefin trade. The project found that the demise of the bluefin was directly linked to years of widespread fraud, negligence, and lack of oversight that spanned the entire bluefin supply chain — from fishing fleets and tuna ranches to distributors. The investigation included a 26-minute documentary co-produced between ICIJ and London-based tve that aired on BBC World News and numerous reprints and quotes as described in my blog.
