Sharks get bitten

Things really starting to crank up here in Doha, and at 35 degrees Centigrade, so did the heat.

It's not long now till the big one - Bluefin Tuna - when you can guarantee there'll be a media feeding frenzy.

Committee one finally got through some of the less newsworthy agenda items and onto something more people could get their teeth into; a resolution that would have helped shark conservation.

However, after a round of familiar rhetoric, the resolution was narrowly defeated - no doubt we'll hear the same arguments plenty of times over the coming days...

Today, plants are dominating the agenda, and although no less important to conserve them, they just don't generate the media interest large animals command.
