These sharks are being slaughtered to make "Shark Fin Soup" mainly in Asian restaurants across the world. Their population has decreased by 50% in the last 10 years. Do Not Order Shark Fin Soup - to help stop this massacre.

But an exception to this law for one species, the smooth dogfish, has a loophole that can lead to the undetected finning of smooth dogfish and other shark species.
