Peter Hammarstedt - Catching Thunder

From Saturday Morning, 8:09 am on 23 June 2018

In 2014 the Sea Shepherd marine conservation ship, Bob Barker, embarked from Antarctic waters on a chase across thousands of kilometres of open sea. Its target - Thunder, an illegal fishing ship wanted by Interpol. The captain of the Bob Barker, Peter Hammarstedt, joins Kim from Stockholm to talk about what became the world's longest sea chase - the trail uncovering crime, corruption, slavery, the destruction of ocean habitats, and the battle for endangered species. Hammarstedt's story is told in Catching Thunder: The true story of the world's longest sea chase, by Eskil Engdal & Kjetil Saeter.
