Good News for Mexican Sharks.

Mexico Passes Shark Finning Ban. New Protections for Great White, Whale and Basking Sharks, Manta Rays.

In a surprising move, the Mexican government has recently published sweeping new regulations and protections for sharks, including a shark finning ban, an extension of the moratorium on new commercial shark fishing permits, and extensive protections for great white sharks, whale sharks, basking sharks and manta rays.

“Mexico has taken a real leadership position here” says Patric Douglas CEO of Shark Diver a shark cage diving company based in San Diego. “The rest of Latin America is watching what Mexico does with great interest now, this is good news indeed.”
