Palau bans shark hunting: UN General Assembly Sept 2009

From the General Assembly at the United Nations this week, some good news is announced for marine and fish conservation as a promise is made by Palau that it will ban shark hunting from its waters and become a Shark Sanctuary.

Fish of all stripes could use such support as this, and Palau plans to ask the world to join in such banning (good luck with that.)
