Shark finning is the practice of hacking the
fins off the shark on board the fishing vessel and throwing its
body - dead or alive - back into the sea. This practice claims
the lives of millions of sharks each year and is pushing many
previously common species of shark to the brink of extinction.
Why is there such a demand for shark fins? Because of shark
fin soup, an Asian "delicacy" which has become extremely
popular in recent years. Spread the word about shark finning by

About the design: a shark fin protruding above the surface of the water is usually seen as a symbol of danger - this is contrasted with a knife blade thrust into the sea, indiscriminately killing sharks. Every year 10 people die in shark attacks; Wild Aid estimate that 200 million sharks are killed every year at human hands. Visit StopSharkFinning.net for more information.
