UAE inks new shark protection agreement
The UAE has signed a new agreement to protect migrating sharks as efforts continue against shark fin traffickers.
Eight other Arab countries signed the agreement in Dubai at the City Seasons Suites hotel on Monday.
A UAE official told Gulf News the agreement forms part of wider local measures to protect all sharks against over-exploitation.
Monday’s commitment is known as the Memorandum of Understanding on the Conservation of Migratory Sharks.
