“Minister Zaha made the remarks at the 14th meeting for the People's Majlis Committee on Economic Affairs, and stated that the fisheries industry is required to generate revenue for the Maldivian government, they were considering legalizing shark fishing as a strategy for improving profits from the fisheries industry. Fisheries Minister Zaha went on to confirm that discussions were being conducted to that effect at the committee meeting, and stated that as very few countries had protected shark populations for conservation, the Maldives could also begin fishing sharks to generate profits.” (Ref: https://raajje.mv/97281

There are discussions happening in the Maldivian Parliament leaning towards legalising shark fishing for economic gains. 

It comes as a huge surprise when Maldives main source of income is tourism and within this industry the sharks are WORTH MORE ALIVE THAN DEAD. 

Sharks are the apex predators of our ocean, keeping the fish population and reef health in check, however their population is threatened due to shark fisheries, please sign this petition to come together to say;

“NO MALDIVES! I WILL NOT STAND FOR SHARK KILLING AND THE DESTRUCTION OF OUR DELICATE ECOSYSTEM!”
