Shark conservation: US leads the way

Postby JR8 » Wed, 22 Dec 2010 6:08 pm

Following on from another thread. I thought I'd post this piece of good news from yesterday. The US government clearly seem to appreciate the importance of management of shark fishing... good for them!

Quite, it is great to see a lead beng taken. So now the US are going to draw up tables of which countries do not abide by equivalent rules/laws, i.e. those countries where it is a free for all on sharks.
