Shark Conservation - On The Media

Woke up this morning to a veritable media buffet of shark conservation coverage regarding shark fisheries efforts with the EU.

Over 122 media outlets (not including blogs) have covered this story which is pro shark and pro conservation.

For all the negative shark press these papers put out pushing shark hysteria it is to be noted they also do an excellent job when the news is needed most:

Times Online U.K

Euro News

Guardian U.K

Over the past 20 years, the total E.U shark catch has increased by nearly 35%, to more than 800,000 tonnes. As a result, some of these beautiful species are threatened with extinction, such as the Spurdog.
