Please sign this petition... Tell the National People's Congress of China to support the proposal to ban shark fins. http://www.change.org/petitions/support-chinese-legislation-to-ban-shark-fins?%3Fopt_new=t&opt_fb=t#?opt_new=f&opt_fb=t

Guys,
found these 2 links online
Brain Neuron Degenaration via Mercury

High Mercury Levels in Shark Fin
http://www.flmnh.ufl.edu/fish/organizations/ssg/sharknews/sn8/shark8news16.htm

Quoted "The Hong Kong Standard reported in October that samples of shark fin bought from Hong Kong wholesalers and tested in the US were found to contain up to 5.84 ppm of mercury (maximum permitted levels in Hong Kong are only 0.5 ppm). "

I read this "What is the Future of Ocean Conservation?" with a heavy heart  :'( (posted Tuesday April 12, 2011 )... http://paulhiltonphotography.com/index.php/field-notes/

At the edge of the the Misool No-take zone...
"Notes taken that morning. The head count.
20 Scalloped Hammer head sharks- Endangered
16 Guitar Rays
1 Bow Mouth Guitar Ray
7 Sting Rays
7 Whole grey reef sharks on deck, 1 to 2 meters in length.
2 Whole guitar Rays, around 2 meters
I whole sting ray, 1 meter across
Several jaws, sculls and fins in the engine room and skin under a tarpaulin at the back of the boat.

Remember this is only one vessel and there are hundreds of boats like this, operating on a daily basis throughout Indonesia."

I thank all the divers who are helping Shark Savers at ADEX, I know there are more interested but just do not have the time... But please feel free to drop by the booth (C01), put down your pledge - Say "NO" to shark fin & bring back a few brochures, talk to more people & help spread the awareness. Let's contribute to the solution of this massive problem.
