HIT THE URL BELOW. TAKE 2 MINUTES TO HELP STOP HAWAIIAN FISHERMEN FROM
BECOMING BUFFALO HUNTERS.

Hawaii is one of only four coastal states where fishermen can haul
sharks into their boats, amputate their valuable fins, and dump the
animals back into the ocean. Last year alone, Hawaii-based longliners
finned over 55,000 sharks. Eighty-six percent of the sharks were alive
when brought on board the boats. The fins used in shark fin soup
are sold on the black market.

Here in the Pacific, we are attempting to prohibit this practice which
has
already been banned in fisheries in the Atlantic and the Gulf of Mexico.
We
are asking the Western Pacific Fisheries Management Council (WPFMC) --
the
Federal agency responsible for managing fisheries in our part of the
Pacific
to take firm action to end this practice. We need your support for
WPFMCs
upcoming meeting on June 17.

FINNING IS WHAT THE BUFFALO HUNTERS DID OVER 100 YEARS AGO ON THE U.S.
PLAINSWHEN THEY WIPED OUT THE BUFFALO SIMPLY FOR THEIR TONGUES AND
HIDES. LETS STOP A REPEAT PERFORMANCE WITH SHARKS. MASSIVE NUMBERS OF
SHARKS ARE BEING SLAUGHTERED WORLDWIDE SOLELY FOR THEIR FINS.

Opponents argue that a ban on shark-finning would have devastating
economic
consequences. The truth is that a ban would only reduce the subsidy to
vessel
owners and captains who allow crew to keep the proceeds from
under-the-table,
cash-only sales of the fins as a bonus to supplement their low wages.
Without
the subsidy from sharks, owners and captains would otherwise have to pay
higher
wages. The fins do not generate any income tax revenue for the state.
