Stop Illegal Shark Fishing in Cyprus NOW!


Shark fishing in Cyprus has been evident for the past 5 years. Fishers are slaughtering protected species of sharks in our waters, sacrificing these magnificent high predators for the sake of tourist activities. Shark fishing trips are organised throughout the island, and are promoted publicly through the internet. This activity is not regulated by the authorities, who fail to impose any set of regulations or enforce legislation.
We demand the immediate and effective banning of shark fishing, and the enforcement of penalties to the companies that are engaged in this action.
