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.

    Only 4 years? If you really wanted this to stop you'd increase the years. It almost seems like a cash grab just for the fine $

    Should cut off their arms and just throw them in jail to suffer their years in there bleeding out like the sharks suffered

    The ship should be sunk and the Chinese captain fined and banned from fishing a thousand miles from any Galapagos Island If caught again breaking the law ask the sharks what they want from them. Swimming with the sharks with a chum suit.

    Only up to 4 years in jail? Does the law enforcement who sentenced these people not care that a world heritage sight was basically disgraced. 6,600 shark bodies. They all would have been finned alive and died long painful deaths. If we continue to pass out petty sentences to such big crimes then it will continue and we won't have sharks anymore. A massive chunk taken out of the Eco system

    So upsetting to see all those poor sharks 😡 at least they got caught but 4 years is not enough. The owner of the finishing ship should loose his license too.

    That should be like a 20 year sentence... Or maybe just death
