Angel sharks and other species illegally fished in Fuerteventura


illegal fishing of angelshark Fuerteventura Squatina Squatina

The company Reel em In on Fuerteventura was publicly exposed. They have published photos of caught Angelsharks (Squatina squatina) and other protected species on their website. These are protected by both European and Spanish laws. These are highly endangered species. This is especially the case for angelsharks, which are still quite common in the Canary Islands.

The story’s just making its rounds on the social networks.

We hope that the authorities will intervene as soon as possible and that the perpetrators will get their fair punishment!
