Take Action Against Amazon!  
Online megastore, Amazon, sells everything from books to electronics to home decor. But there's no room in its product line for shark fin soup.

This so-called delicacy exploits a population that is already threatened with extinction. Shark finning involves cutting off the shark’s fins while it is still alive, and then tossing the body back into to the sea, dead or dying. Up to 73 million sharks are killed every year to support the international shark fin market.

Amazon has already discontinued one brand of shark fin soup thanks to consumer response. Now we need to get ALL shark fin products removed from its virtual shelves.

You may be too late, a search of Amazon shows all edible shark products are "currently not available"

Perhaps just the spectre of a boycot got the items pulled -

A quick look at the "customer reviews" tells the story of why the product was pulled. Hooray for free speech!
