The growing trade in shark fins – often used to make an expensive Asian soup — has become a serious threat to many shark species. The latest research suggests that around 100 million sharks may be killed annually, often targeted for their fins.

In a landmark move, Canada – the largest importer of shark fins outside of Asia – has passed new legislation banning the import and export of shark fins. Unlocking the tremendous potential for renewed ocean health, the effort is part of the country’s new Fisheries Act, which aims at rebuilding fish abundance in Canada’s oceans.

Since sharks are at the top of the food chain in virtually every part of every ocean, the new legislation represents a major victory for our marine ecosystems.
