Celebrate Shark Week 2017 with Oceana


Take Action

Every year, fins from as many as 73 million sharks end up in the global fin trade. The gruesome and inhumane practice of shark finning poses one of the greatest threats to shark’s survival. It’s up to us to do something about it. Add your name now and tell Congress to ban the trade of all shark fin products in the U.S.
