Chile Bans Shark Finning


08/08/2011 - A new law requires that fishermen who catch sharks, intentionally or as by-catch, must land them with their fins naturally attached.

This unsustainable trade is fueled by shark finning, the wasteful act of slicing off the fins and discarding the body at sea.
