July 2023.The European Commission announced the successful European citizens' initiative demanding action to stop the trade in shark fins and issued a Communication on the subject. The goal of the petition, which gathered 1.1 million signatures, is to end the trade of shark fins in the EU, by extending Regulation (EU) No 605/2013 to ban the import, export and transit of loose shark fins. The Commission commits to launch, by the end of 2023, an impact assessment of the measure, improve import and export statistics, strengthen the enforcement of traceability measures and take international action to advocate for a worldwide ban of shark finning.
