My name is Vannia Pacheco I'm nine years old and I want to make finning illegal in the U.S. because Sharks are very important to our ecosystem and they keep fish, seals, and sea lion populations down. Because if there are a few fish sick in a few schools of fish they can contaminate the other fish in the school but sharks can eat those fish and they won't get sick! 

Thousands of sharks are killed everyday because of finning! In Asia many people kill sharks and take there fins so they can a fancy soup! that soup can cost up to 1,000 dollars! People say the soup is very good!  But we need sharks like Great Whites and Mako sharks! Because there will be too many fish or too many seals and sea lions and if they eat many fish populations they can die! Many Sharks like Makos are fished because people think it is "cool" or "fun" to fish them. And a lot of  different sharks live in the U.S. so people are most likely to do finning here or kill them for sport here. The worst part is that sharks cannot live without there fins they have to keep swimming to breath because they don't have an air bladder. an air bladder helps a fish swim to the surface or down if they want to go up they have to fill there air bladder to help them swim up. If they want to go down they have to deflate their air bladder. but sharks don't have air bladders they have to keep swimming or they will sink! Then they won't be able to breath well and eventually die.

Another reason why they are endangered is because there is a substance in almost every sharks liver that helps with health issues and is used for beauty cosmetics. like, anti aging creams, lipstick, lip gloss, sunscreen, foundation, and much more! So if you eliminate finning shark populations will grow more and more! this is why I think finning should be illegal!
