Stop Local Shark Finning (Savannah GA)

This petition had 3,322 supporters

Shark Finning is the practice in which people capture sharks, cut off their fins, and throw them back to the ocean to die. This is done for the making of Shark Fin Soup. This is was once considered a meal for royalty or wealthy. It is now something many restaurants offer. The fins in the soup is only for texture and has no taste. With that, there is no main purpose for the soup. Not only is it insignificant in the soup's taste but this practice is killing the ecosystem as many types of sharks are becoming endangered. This is not only a global issue but is also a major problem here on Georgia's coast. Savannah has been the export leader in shark fins over the last several years.
