World Ocean Day for Sharks in San Francisco

Sea Stewards hosts World Ocean Day to celebrate sharks and a healthy ocean, with help from our friends at The Sea Turtle Restoration Project, Team Fishfinders, Coare, The Farallones Marine Sanctuary & The Cordell Banks Marine Sanctuary.

This is a pivotal week in California as our senate votes on AB 376, California’s ban against the sale of sharkfins. In the face of heavy lobbying by some members of the Asian Community who feel that such a ban targets their traditions, we hope that the senate appreciates the bigger picture – that protecting sharks is critical for healthy ocean ecosystems!
