Shark Finning in Mozambique

Although shark finning is legal in Mozambique, the trading of GWS body parts is a violation of both Mozambique law and CITES (Convention on International Trade of Endangered Species) appendix 2. In fact, great whites are endangered because of extreme hunting and unregulated trade. When sharks are killed for their fins, 95% of their body mass is often wasted. Sharks are valuable to the vitality of oceanic ecosystems because they function as key predators. If we don’t take precautions to protect these magnificent animals, they won’t be here for that much longer. Hopefully, we can convince the people of Mozambique why it is important to not let the existence of the great white, and other sharks, become a thing of the past. Please share what’s going on with people you know!
