FINNING!!! Take actions for the SHARKS

Publié le par Isabella-Vegan-♥

___Over 8,000 tons of shark fins are processed each year. The fins only amount to 4% of a shark's bodyweight. This means that some 200,000 tons of shark are thrown back into the sea and discarded.

 

Already 18 species of sharks have been listed as endangered by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN).__ source : Sea Shepherd http://www.seashepherd.org/

Dear Friends,

 

9-17 October 2010  was  European Shark Week 2010: European Shark Week  was With Call to “Focus on Finning”

 

But Finning is not finished !  

 

PLS Focus on Finning even you do not live in EU.

 

Shark fin soup (or shark's fin soup) is a Chinese soup , a popular item usually served at special occasions such as weddings and banquets or as a luxury item in Chinese culture!!!as well in chinese restaurants .

 

This is done in a process called finning where the fins of the shark is cut from living sharks. 

After the fins have been cut off, the remainder of the fish which is often still-living, is thrown back into the sea. When returned to the ocean, the finless shark is unable to swim and sinks to the ocean bottom and dies a slow death...

 

IT IS TIME TO STRENGTEN THE FINNING BAN !!!

Actions :

Do you live in an area where there are restaurants that serve shark fin soup?

 Do you wish they would take it off the menu?

 Well people across the world are networking and taking steps to encourage restaurant owners to do just that .

Actions à organiser devant les restaurants servant les potages aux ailes de requin:

Protests  against Shark Fin soup in front of restaurants :

Before organizing any protest, contact the restaurant owners/managers (in person if possible) and tell them about shark finning

- ask them if they would be prepared to take shark fin soup off the menu.

Give them a few days to think about it and either visit them again or call back.

 If they decide to continue selling shark fin soup this is when you can start with the protests.

*All protests should be peaceful and respectful.

  En Français:

 

***Amis Français et Francophones  :Il est temps de faire valoir votre voix ou de continuer à vous battre contre cette pratique immonde :

 

Le shark finning est une activité pratiquée  des pêcheurs . Elle consiste à pêcher spécifiquement des requins en leur coupant les ailerons puis à rejeter les corps à la mer.

 

Ils meurent au bout d'une longue et douloureuse agonie..

 

L'essentiel des ailerons des requins alimentent le marché asiatique et plus particulièrement le marché chinois et certains restaurants asiatiques.Les Chinois sont en effet particulièrement friands de la soupe aux ailerons de requin qui est considérée comme un mets recherché et qui doit figurer au menu des fêtes!!!!

 

MERCI DE SIGNER LA PETITION SUR LE site  de Shark Alliance , si encore ouverte et de ***visiter les autres sites pour suivre les actions, pétitions actuelles ou nouvelles.

***Important note :
Thanks to Katrien Vandevelde
 
 
here:
Dear all,

 

 

We still need 116 Members of the European Parlaiment (MEP's) to sign the written declaration to close the loopholes in the European finning ban.

The EU fishing fleet is responsible for 1 in 3 shark fins in trade in the whole world!!

 

More info:

 http://www.projectaware.org/content/index.php?pid=232

 http://www.sharkalliance.org/content.asp?did=36168 

 

 

Please do your part and send a few letters to MEP's to remind them of the written declaration.

We have prepared for you standard letters in the language these MEP's speak.

YOU DO NOT NEED TO HAVE THE NATIONALITY OF A EUROPEAN COUNTRY (or live there) TO WRITE THE MEP'S.

Pelagic sharks cross country borders every day and the oceans belong to us ALL!
