Research Fund - 2010/10
Once again, Flying Sharks and the Portuguese Elasmobranch Association (APECE) joined hands and took to the road! This year's event focused on ensuring that Written Declaration 71/2010 was signed by at least half of the Members of the European Parliament. This was a requirement for this document to be approved, which was a major stepping stone in the fight towards abolishing FINNING in Europe. And, guess what? After 15 lectures over one week, WE DID IT! So we were more than happy to contribute with 1.900 euros for gas, hotels, meals and Red Bull!
