Best Wishes from the RTSea Blog

Whatever your personal beliefs, may you all have a joyous holiday season spent with family and friends. Let's hope that in 2009 and for many years to come, mankind focuses its attention on the importance of the planet's natural resources.

The number of sharks taken each year ranges from a conservative 40 million to as high as 120 million - the discrepancy being due largely to unreported illegal or unregulated catches.

Hopefully, the new year will show some progress. Let's keep at it!
