Monterey, California is a mecca for marine science and education. There is a lot of focus on conservation and respecting the oceans. Monterey should set the standard for responsible fishing practices. It is important for locals and visitors alike to see what a positive difference Monterey is making in the world to help the oceans and its inhabitants. It is horrifically wrong to be selling unborn sharks in jars to tourists at Old Fisherman's Wharf (or anywhere else) as these animals are extremely important in our ecosystems. Shark fishing is greatly depleting already suffering populations of these animals and when females carrying young are killed, it impacts those populations even more. The last thing that should be promoted is the killing of pregnant female sharks just to make a quick buck selling their dead fetuses to tourists. PLEASE STOP THE SLAUGHTER AND SALE OF BABY SHARKS!! Please share and post....let's get the word out there and put an end to this atrocity!!
