Saving Sharks, Part 2

Misool Eco Resort, the highly respected diving resort built on a former shark-finning camp, has a 425-sq. km. no-take-zone, where fishing is forbidden. But just outside its area, finners are at work, as the latest news from Misool explains in captivating detail. It is suspected that lots of illegal fishing goes on in Daram, to the southeast, which Misool is trying to turn into a no-take-zone too (see the resort’s fabulous 14-day-yacht auction for details on how it wants to finance that). This week’s discovery of the massive haul (some of the shark fins and rays pictured) has made Misool even more determined in its efforts.
