The environmental group Greenpeace said there was an "overfishing crisis" in the Indian Ocean and urged better monitoring of trawlers.

Greenpeace raised the alarm as its flagship Rainbow Warrior arrived in Sri Lanka at the end of a two-month expedition in the Indian Ocean to monitor tuna fishing and poaching in the region.

The Rainbow Warrior had set sail from Durban, South Africa, in early September and travelled to Mozambique, Mauritius, the Maldives and Sri Lanka.
