Chile shark finning ban passes unanimously

Discovery News is reporting that the Chilean National Congress voted unanimously in favor of passing a bill that would ban the practice of shark on 30 species of sharks found in Chile’s coastal waters. The law does not prohibit shark fishing, but it does require that any sharks be landed whole and requires that harvested sharks remain whole “all the way to the market,” according to Discovery News.
