Businesses Selling Shark Fins

Marine Conservation Home / NEXT: Marine Biodiversity »

stop shark finning

This dynamic list of businesses selling shark fins (either whole, as shark fin soup or in related dishes) is being compiled through ongoing online research and reports submitted by people around the world (so this list very likely represents only a tiny fraction of those selling shark fins).

Shark populations are facing steep declines due to many years of exploitation with a large part of that for their fins for soup (too often by the cruel practice of shark finning - view the videos to the right for more information). Their slow reproductive rates make them extremely vulnerable to extinction and their disappearance is causing dangerous imbalances in marine ecosystems the world over.

We welcome your input to help build and maintain this list. If you know of a business selling shark fins that is not listed below, email us, submit a comment or send us a message via facebook.

If you see shark fin products in a country or US state where there is currently a ban (e.g., Bahamas, Cook Islands, Egypt, French Polynesia, Palau, California, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, Oregon, and Washington), please report it by contacting us so that we can verify and then add it to the list below and contact the proper oversight agency.

If you see shark fin products in a country or US state where there is not currently a ban, please also report it by contacting us as we expect bans to increase as shark populations continue to become more threatened and endangered.

If you own a business on this list and believe it shouldn't be listed here, please contact us with proof that you do not offer shark fins and, after verification, we will gladly remove it. Ultimately we hope to have no listings below so we can delete this list. Also, see our disclaimer below.

Please contact the following businesses and ask that they stop selling any products containing shark fins:

Australia

Shark finning is not allowed in any tuna or billfish longline fishery, or in any Commonwealth fishery (i.e. federal waters ranging from 3-200 miles (4.8 to 321.9 km) offshore) taking sharks. Fins must be landed attached, and additional regulations apply in some states or territories. In New South Wales, sharks taken or any relevant portion of a shark taken may not be on board any vessel at any time (including after landing) without fins naturally attached (Fisheries Management Act 1994, s.8 Notification - Fishing Closure (Official Notices, 2 September 2011 NSW Government Gazette No. 86 Department of Primary Industries).

Help Protect and Restore Ocean Life

Help us protect and restore marine life by supporting our various online community-centered marine conservation projects that are effectively sharing the wonders of the ocean with millions each year around the world, raising a balanced awareness of the increasingly troubling and often very complex marine conservation issues that affect marine life and ourselves directly, providing support to marine conservation groups on the frontlines that are making real differences today, and the scientists, teachers and students involved in the marine life sciences.

Join us today or show your support with a monthly donation.

With your support, most marine life and their ocean habitats can be protected, if not restored to their former natural levels of biodiversity. We sincerely thank our thousands of members, donors and sponsors, who have decided to get involved and support the MarineBio Conservation Society.
