INFORMATION

Finning: Slicing off a shark's fins for soup and tossing the body back to sea so the sharks bleed to death as they drown.

The situation is grim for a growing number of shark populations who are in peril from overfishing and unsustainable finning.

The U.S. passed a national finning ban in 2000, but the practice continues and is still legal in many other nations. The demand for the fins - which can sell for up to hundreds of dollars per pound - remains high for shark fin soup, a delicacy.

The Shark Conservation Act of 2009 closes loopholes in the U.S. finning ban and can revitalize shark conservation efforts on a global scale. It must be passed without further delay. Please join us in sending a powerful message to your senators to end finning and save the sharks!
