The biggest case of illegal fishing in the Galapagos

In the Galapagos, the bodies of 6,600 sharks caught in a marine protected zone have been found in a cargo ship. A sad new record.

    Should have gotten at least 20 years or more and fined at least 50 million dollars.

    Eating fish or any meat or dairy is unsustainable, detrimental to tie environment and unethical.

    They didn't get fined enough or sentenced to enough time! Absolutely disgusting. There is no word in the English language to describe these kind of people.

    Endless shark fishing before they got caught? Does the Ecuadorian navy, not have electronic equipment? Radar? Desire?
