3,500 shark fins en route to Hong Kong confiscated in Colombia
Between 900-1,000 sharks between the sizes of three and 16 feet were killed to accumulate this shipment which came from the municipality of Roldanillo, in Colombia’s southwest region.
“The shipping company was who initially alerted environmental authorities and police,” Bogota environmental secretary Carolina Urrutia said. “The police are taking samples to know exactly what species they are, but we know that there are more than three species of shark which exist in Colombian waters.”
The national police are handling the case, and they have requested all necessary information from our shipping company.
