The sharks have been waiting a long time for this!
Crucial Vote on Finning Regulation this Wednesday in European Parliament
The Shark Alliance today published an advert on the back page of the European Voice newspaper urging MEPs on the Fisheries Committee to join the growing chorus calling to amend the EU ban on shark finning.
After six years of debate, today's call for action comes before the Parliament Fisheries Committee meeting on 19th September where MEPs will vote on MEP Patroa Neves' report and amendments before it is submitted to a vote in plenary in October.
The Shark Alliance is urging MEPs to remember commitments and vote for sharks to be landed with their fins naturally attached - with no exceptions!
