EU Red Card for Taiwan? Taiwan Pushing For Fisheries Amendments Raises Discussion

In February, piles of young shark bodies without fins were found in Hsinchu, calling the attention to illegal shark finning once again. Last October, a Taiwanese fishing boat, Shuen De Ching No. 888, was also found illegally finning sharks, leading to the EU serving Taiwan a yellow card. The EU gave the Taiwanese government six months to amend laws preventing illegal fishing and discussions have been aroused again as the deadline is approaching at the end of March.
