The Sea Shepherd organization received a donation of 8.3 million euros ($9.35 million) in late January to build a custom vessel in its fight to stop illegal fishing in the Southern Ocean.

The vessel will be faster than any vessel in its current fleet. Dutch builder Damen will build the ship.

The donation came from the postcode lotteries in the Netherlands, Sweden and the United Kingdom. Sea Shepherd has received more than 15 million euros in donations from the postcode lottery since 2007.
