The European Parliament finally voted to close the loopholes in the European Union (EU) shark finning ban. HOORAY!!

Finning bans made simple

As Europe enters the final stages of debate on a proposal to close the loopholes in the shark finning ban, find out what finning is, why the current regulation isn’t good enough and why conservationists, scientists, and an increasing number of countries in the EU and beyond support a policy of ‘fins attached’ with no exceptions.

EU Set to Vote on Shark Finning Ban

Sept 13, 2012: EU Set to Vote on Shark Finning Ban #SharkFinningBan

Success! EU Closes Shark Finning Ban Loopholes - In a big win for sharks, the European Union earlier this week finally adopted a strict ban on shark finning. Officially shark finning, a process whereby fins are harvested from living sharks, has been illegal in the EU since 2003. However, as we reported in late 2012, loopholes and exemptions in the law allowed the process to continue. Now, at long last, the process has been outlawed once and for all.

Sad day for sharks! Today's vote on the EU shark finning ban is confusing. Loopholes not widened, but not yet closed as battle moves to Plenary. We'll keep pushing and rallying support for a strict EU shark finning regulation for as long as it takes! #shark #finning
