    Ecuador detains Chinese Fishing Boat with Endangered Sharks

    On BBC News:


    Authorities in Ecuador have detained the crew of a Chinese fishing boat suspected to have caught endangered sharks in the Galapagos Islands.
    The Fu Yuan Yu Leng 999 was found on Sunday in the archipelago, which is a marine reserve, carrying 300 tonnes of fish.
    Most of the catch was sharks, including protected species such as hammerheads.
    About 20 crew members face up to three years in prison if found guilty of trafficking protected species.
    The Galapagos archipelago is an UNESCO world heritage site because of the rich bio-diversity found in the area...

    Sickening. Glad they were apprehended. Saddened 200 tons of partially illegal death resulted first.

    Last week one of the nurses had a conversation with a patient comparing restaurants. A Chinese restaurant came up and she was praising their shark fin soup. They obviously had no idea what is going with that. They do now and I hope it was enough for them to not eat shark fin soup again. As good as this place may be, I will not frequent it because they serve shark fin soup there.
