Discovery of 30 dead sharks on board boat (PHOTOS)

The owner of the launch, which is now impounded, will have to pay almost $10,000 for each of the sharks it was smuggling.

Wildlife rangers off the coast of Sistan and Baluchestan in southeastern Iran have uncovered the chopped bodies of 30 baby sharks hidden on board a boat.

The owner of the launch, which is now impounded, will have to pay almost $10,000 for each one of the sharks it was smuggling.

An increase in the number of poached sharks which are used in restaurants and for industrial and treatment purposes has seen their ranks shrink in recent years.
