Please join the staff and divers of The Scuba Shop, and swimmers from Aqua-Tots Swim School in Mesa, Arizona as we swim to stop shark Finning.  On March 15, 2014 from 4-6pm we will be swimming laps to gain donations, which we will provide to Project Aware in order to put an end to the process of shark finning.  We are FINatical, and here is why; Shark fishing is largely unregulated around the world. Overfishing, bycatch and finning- the slicing of shark finning and throwing away the body at sea-kills thousands of sharks every day.

The Malaysia International Dive Expo (MIDE) this July was a fantastic opportunity to meet AWARE supporters and thank them in person for their efforts to protect the ocean.  Scuba Junkie shark expert Rohan Perkins presented at MIDE to help raise awareness for sharks. Rohan received Project AWARE funding through the Ocean Action Project in 2012 so I made a special trip to visit the Scuba Junkie team and check out their conservation programs.
