Shark Fin Win!
On May 10, 2021, the culmination of years of lobbying by Bite-Back Shark & Marine Conservation, a significant shake-up of UK shark fin trade laws became a reality.
The official news that the government is set to ban the import and export of shark fins erupted in celebratory cheers at Bite-Back HQ. From the moment Bite-Back Shark & Marine Conservation first revealed the loophole in the law that allowed anyone to carry 20kg of shark fins into our borders, to the series of behind-the-scenes meetings with Lord Zac Goldsmith and DEFRA, the announcement is the culmination of six years of hard work by the team.
Bite-Back thanks all of you for your continued support and trust in us to successfully advocate for sharks and the marine environment.
The charity Bite-Back Shark & Marine Conservation protects the high waters on the high street. By 2048, overfishing and overconsumption could wipe out many shark species. We’re here to make sure it doesn’t happen, and we’re working with our supporters to do so.
