SRI works with the scientific community, individuals and
organizations concerned about the health of our marine ecosystem,
and marine resource users: subsistence fishermen, sport divers, and
the dive tourism industry. SRI works to correct misperceptions about
sharks and stop the slaughter of 100 million sharks annually. A
primary goal is creating value for sharks as sustainable natural
resources for the dive tourism industry, particularly in developing

Every year tens of millions of sharks die a slow death because of
finning. Finning is the inhumane practice of hacking off the shark's
fins and throwing its still living body back into the sea. The
sharks either starve to death, are eaten alive by other fish, or
drown. Shark fins are being harvested to feed the growing demand for
shark fin soup, an Asian delicacy. Stop Shark Finning is campaigning
to achieve a worldwide ban on shark finning.
