    First ban on shark and manta ray trade comes into force

     

     

    All trade in five named species of sharks is to be regulated from now on, in a significant step forward for conservation.

    Without a permit confirming that these sharks have been harvested legally and sustainably, the sale of their meat or fins will be banned.

    The regulation was agreed last year at a meeting of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (Cites) in Thailand.

    The rules also apply to manta rays.
