Most of this stock comes from the Philippines. It is not illegal to sell shark jaws, although the trade in any shark parts undoubtedly hastens the extinction of the species. According to UN estimates 73 million sharks are being wiped out each year, and the UN also predict a total collapse in shark stocks in as early as ten to fifteen years from now.Locations:California-San Diego-United States of AmericaDate:12 Nov, 2006Credit:© Greenpeace / Alex HoffordMaximum size:2048px X 3072pxKeywords:Animal products-Day-Indoors-KWCI (GPI)-Oceans (campaign title)-Shark-Shops-Tourism-TradeShoot:Defending Our Oceans Tour in MexicoThe Greenpeace vessel 'MY Esperanza' is currently in the 'World's Aquarium' on the Gulf of California, Mexico as part of the Defending Our Oceans Tour. This area is renowned for its rich marine life and has huge economic benefit for the whole of Mexico, bringing nearly five million tourists and providing half the countries fish supply. Pressure from destructive fishing, pollution and uncontrolled tourism development are threatening life in the Aquarium. One of the focuses for this part of the tour is the plight of the world's most endangered porpoise - the vaquita. Greenpeace are calling for a network of marine reserves to be introduced globally in order to control fishing and protect endangered species.
