North Korea's Ghost Ships

Never started a thread in this group before, but after watching this video, I had to. After spending too many years working for Japanese and Korean companies, I have come to understand them better than they think. (if you know the languages...)

This is about all the (apparently) dead fishing vessels appearing on the Japanese West Coast that are coming from NK. It tells a sad story about impoverished NKs who stray further from NK to try and fulfill ever increasing quotas. Along the way, they run in to a natural barrier that exceeds the solidity of their fishing vessels.

There is a rather questionable researcher from JP, with an RU accent, who presents lots of info in the middle to end. Treat him with skepticism. (I did anyhow) This video came from Al Jazeera, and they see, to be a well researched media outlet.
