Usually the best pictures we get of the Sea Shepherd's battles on the high seas are grainy satellite images.

Normally David's r quite clever people - guess you missed the boat on that one buddy.
'46 miss-informed' ???? More like 4.6million dedicated (well informed) supporters.
Its a numbers game and your kind are out-gunned and out numbered buddy - we 'urban lives' or high lives as opposed to low lives like you, have the time and the money to support good causes like SSCS.
If you are are a fishermen - sorry life is a bitch, then you will know we are are fast running out of fish, they also getting smaller and less healthy.
Wake up dopey David, especially if you have a family that relies on that 'brain' of yours to any extent.
Watson has access to wealth - the organisation has a very smart legal, press and money machine behind it (involving multi millionaires) - every successful organisation has to have this.
Watson himself is not rich!!!
All charities pay their executives very highly.
The fact that Watson gets paid is nothing unusual and it is minuscule for what he does.
Who ever replaces Watson will be now different.
Watson is not Sea Shepherd - the organisation is a lot more complex than you can imagine.
Thats why it has so much support, because it can get things done.
To go up against the japanese and their mafia run government, the endless number of poachers in the Galaps, the closed, incestuous societies of the Faroevians and the mafia of the West Indies to name but a few, takes some mettle. Watson and the organisation are amazing.
If Watson is ever put in jail I will personally see to it that he lives like a king there.

Year after year the Sea Shepherd is able to gather a volunteer crew from all over the world, including from Japan, and not just deluded well-wishers and naive enthusiasts: but former Marines, helicopter pilots, mechanics, professional divers etc.
People who are quick to badmouth the Sea Shepherd either have no concern about the marine life or are themselves complicit in its destruction, likely by making money off it. It's like thieves crying "Thief!" to divert attention.
Swiler: 5 out of 10 the highest paid CEOs don't have a college degree (Michael Dell, Steve Jobs). Bill Gates, a Harvard dropout, got an honorary one in 2007.

They've put their lives and freedom at risk in rust-bucket pirate ships for the interest of Paul Watson's lifestyle. They've survived by luck only but have made him very, very wealthy and respected (?) by a handful of Hollywood has-beens who pay his way.
The two parties have settled a long-running legal battle which involves a financial settlement in exchange for assistance in an extradition case.
