HELP WITH ENFORCEMENT AND INSPIRE YOUR POLICY MAKERS

Check out this map and related info at the ANIMAL WELFARE INSTITUTE

A) You can help with enforcement. If you live in a State that banned the possession and sale of fins, and you see shark fins or shark fin soup, contact the authorities and report what you have seen. If you don't know the relevant agency might be, contact the Animal Welfare Institute and they will point you to the proper oversight agency. 

B) If you live in a State that has not passed a Shark Fin Trade Ban, contact your representatives and let them know that this topic matters to you.

Here is a map of all the States that have passed shark fin legislation:
