Europe - big Progress!

Looks like Europe is starting to listen.

Just got this link from the Alex the Sharkman.
Congratulations to The European Fisheries Commission where I continue to be a fan - and yes, to the Shark Alliance as well. This is not a done deal quite yet as it is only a proposal and the national Fisheries Ministers have to ratify it, so here's to those guys doing the right thing.

And there's more good news for Sharks.
The European Union has signed the United Nations Convention on Migratory Species Memorandum of Understanding for Sharks. Again, it's not the finished thing but certainly big progress.

I must say that coupled with the Shark protection measures in Florida, the Silky Shark protection by ICCAT and the protection of the Porbeagle in Europe, this past week has been pretty awesome!

So who's next?
