Country organization of Sharkproject in Germany, based near Frankfurt a.M., is active in Germany & Belgium.

Sharkproject Germany e.V.

In September 2008 — exactly 6 years after the start of Sharkproject e.V. — the national organization Sharkproject Germany e.V. was founded. The aim is to implement the international activities at the national level.

We should not always look to the Far East when searching for those responsible for the extinction of sharks.

As long as in Germany you can still find smoked dogfish, sea eels (spiny dogfish) and shark steaks (blue or porbeagle shark) in many shops and restaurants, and as long as European nations fish for sharks on a huge scale, we are just as guilty of shark extinction if we do nothing about it.

We must therefore first put our own house in order. We want to pull out all the stops in German politics and among German consumers to mobilize a critical mass so that we can save the oceans at the last minute.

You can see what we are doing and how you can help us on this website — or email us. We look forward to your ideas and support.
