Shark trade restriction bid fails

Jun 11,2007 SACN


"Attempts to restrict trade in two threatened shark species through the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) have failed.

Delegates voted down EU proposals to limit trade in the spiny dogfish, sold in UK fish and chip shops as huss or rock salmon, and the porbeagle.

Some said it was an EU problem which the EU should solve."
