Fifteen states now limit or ban the sale of shark fins. Stopping the shark fin trade is crucial, not only because of the devastating cruelty it involves, but also because it is leading to a fast and dangerous decline in shark species. Protect sharks and save our oceans.
A healthy ocean needs sharks; by controlling populations of other predatory fish species, sharks play a key role in a fragile food web and the health of coral reefs.
Each year across the globe, tens of millions of sharks are hunted down, only to have their fins sliced off and their bodies thrown back into the ocean, often left to die an agonizing death. You can help.
