France increases Reunion shark fishing after surfer death

People surf off the coast of Trois Bassins on the western coast of the French Indian Ocean island of La Reunion on April 17, 2015France said Friday it has approved increased fishing of tiger and bull sharks in the marine reserve of its African island territory of Reunion after a teenage surf star was killed. Visiting the Indian Ocean island, the minister for overseas territories, George Pau-Langevin, said the government was launching eight initiatives to reduce shark attacks following the death of 13-year-old Elio Canestri on April 12. “In no way does this mean eradication — that is unrealistic and would be contrary to France’s commitments to biodiversity,” said Pau-Langevin. He left a note for his mother saying “don’t worry”, but was dragged off his surfboard by a 2.5 metre (eight feet) bull shark.
