Protect Sharks Business Pledge

Shark killing tournaments are insensitive, environmentally irresponsible contests that make a spectator sport out of injuring and killing sharks. The pain and suffering experienced by individual sharks, plus the strain on already imperiled global shark populations, is much too high a price to pay for this barbaric thrill.

 

The Humane Society of the United States is proud to partner with Fishpond, Inc.

 

 

 

Why should companies speak out against shark tournaments?

  • The populations of most shark species are plummeting, which makes them particularly vulnerable to competitions that target the largest sharks.
  • Shark tournaments are inherently cruel: Sharks are hauled onto docks, strung up and weighed, and then dismembered in grotesque displays for cash prizes.
  • Regardless of organizers' claims, these gruesome kill events are about sport, not science. And they demonize sharks and disrespect the environment.

As a humane company, I pledge to support shark conservation, not shark killing tournaments and I agree that my company name may be used by Fishpond Inc. and the ProtectSharks campaign in outreach, letters, and press releases pertaining to ending these tournaments.
