  6. 6. Sharks are hunted just to use their fins. Yes! • “Finning” is a practice where sharks are caught, their fins are cut off, and the rest of the body is thrown back into the ocean. • Shark fins are used to make Shark Fin Soup, a delicacy in Asian cultures.

  8. 8. We would be better if all the sharks were gone. No! • Sharks are a “top predator” in the ocean. Without them, the whole ocean food chain would collapse. This would lead to the loss of fish humans like to eat, as well as a reduction in our air quality.
  9. 9. What you can do to help... • Don’t buy shark products. • Learn more about sharks and then tell others! • Don’t litter! The trash might end up in the ocean and kill sharks. • Find a way to get involved! You can adopt a shark at www.adoptashark.com.
