Award Honored Work: 
Looting the Seas: How Overfishing, Fraud and Negligence Plundered the Majestic Bluefin Tuna

This outstanding effort by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists exhaustively documents the corruption and collusion behind the systematic, global devastation of the blue-fin tuna — and by extension the world’s many endangered marine species. The multimedia project is magnificently presented and involved a team of reporters spanning 10 countries. It opened eyes around the world, led to changes in industry and regulatory practice, and could stand as a new model for investigative journalism in a time of media transition.
