Dies ist eine Online-Petition of the European Parliament.


The petitioner denounces the fact that more than 100 million sharks are caught each year across the world and that the Member States of the European Union play a leading role in the market for shark meat. The petitioner notes that, as predators, sharks maintain the balance in the oceans’ ecosystems. The decline in their population as a result of the huge numbers caught could have devastating consequences for the oceans. The petitioner calls for a ban on the fishing and sale of shark, and for complete transparency in the information provided to consumers as regards the nature of fish sold.
