Marinas in the USA will receive
What's the difference between classifications?
- A Shark Friendly Marina or Business discourages killing or landing sharks.
They do not serve shark products or promote activities that intentionally harm sharks
- A Shark-Free Marina does not allow sharks to be killed and landed from their facility
This is a ZERO TAKE policy
Why have two classifications?
We'd like to register every marina as Shark-Free, however, some State laws or private companies have policies that do not allow for a complete ban on killing sharks. In these cases we offer the Shark-Friendly classification which discourages the intentional killing of sharks.
This allows for educational materials and participation in a conservation program by facilities which would otherwise not have access to our program.
