Endangered porbeagle sharks eaten in Belgium


This video from Canada is called Porbeagle Shark in St. Margaret’s Bay, Nova Scotia.

Translated from Natuurpunt in Belgium:

Monday, December 22, 2014

The National Professional Federation of Fish Shopkeepers calls in its magazine for the fishing industry on its members not to sell the endangered porbeagle shark even if wholesalers would offer it. Natuurpunt had insisted on this when two months ago it turned out that the strictly protected shark was still traded in Flanders.

A lot of commotion in October when it turned out that the porbeagle, which is strictly protected since 2010, was still sold by Flemish fishmongers.
