Sharks are a pivotal part of the oceanic food chain if the brutal practice of shark finning is allowed to continue the food chain will collapse and cause catastrophic damage to the bio-diversity of the ocean. Please end this horrible uneeded practice.

Humans every year kill 100 million sharks and for what?
Shark Fins - For a tasteless bowl of soup
Shark Teeth - For Jewlery
Shark Jaws - For Tourists
Shark Cartilage - For Phony Cancer Cures In The Form Of Pills
Shark Liver Oil - For Cosmetic Products
100 million sharks are killed each year by longlining, sport fishermen,or by a cruel practice of shark finning. Hooked sharks are hauled onto boats; their fins are sliced off while they are still alive. These helpless animals are then tossed back into the ocean where, unable to swim without their fins, they sink towards the bottom and die an agonizing death.
With 90% of the world's large shark populations already wiped out, sharks are being depleted faster than they can reproduce. This threatens the stability of marine ecosystems around the world. Sharks are vitally important apex predators. They have shaped marine life in the oceans for over 400 million years and are essential to the health of the planet, and ultimately to the survival of mankind.
