WCPFC - Victory for Whale Sharks!

No more of this - one hopes! BUT the issue of "unintentional bycatch" remains unresolved!

The other news are not good (check out the video!) as nothing positive has been decided and the overfishing will continue, largely because the WCPFC rules requires consensus, meaning that anybody with an agenda can boycott any decision.
