Marine Life Top of CITES Meeting Agenda

Critter News

The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species, or Cites that opened in the Qatari capital on Saturday will be discussing 42 proposals during the next two weeks. On its agenda is Monaco's proposal to have a complete ban on the international commercial trade in Atlantic bluefin tuna. Interesting to see Japan and Australia united on some issues, in contrast to their conflict over whaling. Oh look, more meetings. From Al Jazeera.
