European Union (EU) supports ban on shark finning

The Washington Post reports that the nations of the European Union (EU) backed a proposal that would ban all shark finning in EU waters, requiring that all harvested sharks be landed with their fins attached. Additionally, all EU-registered boats would be banned from finning sharks anywhere in the world.

In order to be signed as law, the proposal must now be approved by the European Parliament.
