World’s largest shark sanctuary

Here is some great news. The Marshall Islands government has created the world's largest shark sanctuary

The sanctuary covers nearly two million sq km of ocean. Till now the sanctuary declared by Palau two years ago was the worlds biggest.

Commercial shark fishing and any trade in shark products will be banned. Any fish accidentally caught must be released alive.

Tahrcountry salute the Republic of the Marshall Islands for this magnificent move. The country may be small but the conservation effort is truly MEGA
