Asian Geographic – Shark Finning Story

Posted in conservation, news, photography with tags , , , on April 30, 2007 by shawnheinrichs

This past December Justin Ebert, Taro Smith and I were out in the Misool region of Raja Ampat diving and filming with Andy Miners in the new marine protected area (MPA). Since the MPA is very new, there is and will be some lag in adherence by the fishermen. We are working hard to change that quickly.

The following is a printed account in the April issue of Asian Geographic of our encounter with a shark finning crew during our visit. This is a more detailed account of the story told in last months issue of Scuba Diving Magazine. Please share this with others so they might be motivated to take action as well.
