Consultation on Shark finning

BLOOM has contributed to the European Commission Consultation on Shark Finning (the practice of cutting off fins at sea). In its proposed reformed regulation, the Commission chose the solution advocated by scientists and NGOs, for sharks to be landed with their fins naturally attached, as it is the only solution capable of ending the illegal practice of discarding shark carcasses once the fins have been cut off.

The regulation is under discussion at the European Parliament.
