Submission + - European Parliament Votes to Stop Shark Finning

An anonymous reader writes: The European Parliament voted Thursday to close loopholes in European Union (EU) policy over shark finning. In 2003, the EU banned removal of shark fins but exempted those fishermen having special permits to cut off fins from sharks legally. The issuing of Special Fishing Permits (SFPs) to fishing vessels prevented the 2003 EU ban to be implemented fully and effectively.
