EU Council : no more derogation for shark finning

Today, the EU Council has voted an amendment to the shark finning regulation. The amendment aims to eliminate the existing derogations to the prohibition of removal of finns. 

Shark finning was prohibited in 2003 within the EU, but some derogations still existed for on board fining.
