Restoring Ocean Health by Saving Sharks
Shark species are going extinct. 100,000,000 sharks and rays are killed for their fins each year. 90% of several species are completely absent from their range. Today 25% of all sharks and rays are threatened or near threatened with extinction. Nearly half are missing the scientific data to manage and protect them.
In ten years many species of sharks could go extinct.

The shark fin trade in the U.S. contributes to plummeting shark populations across the world. Ending consumption and trade will save millions of sharks.

To a lesser degree, white sea bass have been used targeting inshore driftnets.
