Ban by Ebay in the sale of real seahorses

By October 12, 2012The Seahorse Trust News

The Seahorse Trust has made a great breakthorough by working with E-bay to ban the sale of real seahorses in the EU and America.

Mike Carson from the Global poicy department of E-bay has, after a request from the trust, said  ”we are aligning our enforcement to reflect the regulations in the EU and US. We are therefore prohibiting the sales of real seahorses on our EU sites and only allowing the sale of these items on the US site with domestic shipping”

This is fantastic news and thank you to Mike and E-bay for their prompt action once we alerted them to the problem.
