Shark Finning Ended in Europe

The European Parliament announced that shark finning would come to the a stop. Shark finning is a very sad time for sharks. Finners would cut multiple fins off a shark, and they would die, but if they did survive, they wouldn't be able to move, and they would be immobile in the water. Shark finning was originally allowed to fisherman with special permits in 2003, but now it is banned. Oceana helped out with this decision. Shark fin soup is banned in Europe. Shark fin soup is the main cause of shark finning. But now sharks may have a chance. It is our job to help prevent shark finning in other countries.
