Continuing the day on international management (earlier today I posted on the trouble with the High Seas) we look at managing Sharks. Sharks under a huge threat as fishermen are finning (the act of cutting off the fins of sharks and throwing the body back in the water where the sharks are often alive) sharks at a phenomenal rate decreasing most shark populations by 90%. David Shiffman (aka WhySharksMatter) interviews Sonja Fordham, President of Shark Advocates International, on how sharks have been managed in the past and how they should be managed in the future. They are discuss how non-scientists can help saved sharks.

Check out the interview below and let me know how you think sharks could be better managed internationally.
