The UK should ban the importation of Shark Fins for personal consumption

Petition Details

After Brexit, ban the carriage of shark fins in to the UK for personal use
EU law allows individuals travelling to Europe to carry 20kg of dried shark fins for personal consumption. THIS SHOULD STOP

Additional Information

More action is needed after the government response to this petition:

To quote the Dept for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs:

"EU law allows individuals travelling to Europe to carry 20kg of dried shark fins for personal consumption. Our departure from the EU allows us to consider options to tighten the personal import allowance and improve the traceability of the shark in fin trade in the UK."
