Did you know that hammerheads are becoming endangered? The scalloped hammerhead is among the newest creatures and the first sharks to join the endangered species list in the past year. 95% of the hammerhead population has declined since 1985 in the Atlantic and Pacific Ocean. Because of the high demand for shark fins, the scalloped hammerhead population (which is a highly migratory population in coastal regions) has declined significantly with fins warranting $50-$100 per pound. NOAA has reported that this is wholesale value. Hammerheads also die in bycatch. They are often caught in gillnets and targeted when they are juveniles for their meat. Even when accidentally caught and released, most hammerheads cannot survive the trauma. So please help save the sharks and join organizations that protect and prevent shark finning.
