More To Ban Shark's Fin We have posted the news of Hong Kong finally deciding on banning shark’s fin from most menus and now, we have now gotten news that New Zealand will be banning shark’s fin as well within two years. This is especially after the banning of dumping sharks back into the sea after slicing their fin alive whilst still breathing. New Zealand authorities are also looking into banning of sharks’ carcasses dumping at sea. The action of shark’s finning goes against the image that New Zealand has been portraying of conserving fisheries. With only seven out of a hundred and thirteen species currently protected, the authorities are looking into ways to preserve more species of the feared marine life.
