Stop Serving Shark Fins

Most sharks are killed for their fins, which are used to make soup. You’ll be surprised to know that the United States has a booming market for shark fins, with hundreds of restaurants throughout the country serving shark fin soup. Even in states where the purchasing, trading and selling of shark fins is illegal, many restaurants still serve this dish.

While U.S. demand is smaller than other countries, higher prices in U.S. restaurants drive up demand for shark fins and encourage more shark hunting. If we can pressure these restaurants to stop selling shark fin soup, we can make a significant dent in the global shark fin market and save the sharks.
