Britain exports more than 50 tonnes of shark fins in two years

More than 50 tonnes of shark fins worth hundreds of thousands of pounds have been exported from Britain over the past two years, a Greenpeace UK investigation has revealed.

Campaigners are calling on the government to ban these exports which are fuelling the global demand for shark fin soup.

The majority of sharks in European and UK waters are being caught by Spanish vessels, according to the report by the organisation’s investigative journalism unit.
