Where can i sell shark fins
 
Hey guys, I have the fins from a 367 Thresher I caught earlier this year. Is there any place I can sell these fins? What is their worth. I have seen processed ones for hundreds a pound. ;?

A little far for me I am New Jersey! I don't want to just throw them away. That would be a waste but maybe the only option.

Go to Chinatown in NYC. You can probably sell them there...

I would check with the National Marine Fisheries(NMFS) just tell them you are trying to sell fins. They should help you right away.

I thought it was illegal to sell shark fins period. I guess I was wrong...

I think shark finning (cutting the fins without harvesting the entire carcass) is illegal, but selling fins is apparently allowed. I don't know the specifics of selling- just that if shark fins are on your boat, there had better be a shark carcass.

Supposedly, shark fins have a wholesale value of $100 per lb wet, and $200 dried. By the time the fins reach parts of Asia, they're worth considerably more. Apparently, one bowl of shark fin soup might cost $100 in Tokyo.

I wonder if you need a commercial license to sell the fins legally... ;?

Drifter said it politely. Finning IS illegal,,, my understanding anyway.

Not to mention IMMORAL. Why would you land a big thresher anyway? Take a photo & cut it loose for crissake. I really really hope you're jokin about this.

Thresher is as good eating as Mako. Some people even say better.

Unbelievable, just toss the fins. The next thing we know bear 13 will be boasting he got $100 for a fin and everybody in Jersey will be finning! Why not let the shark go in the first place.

I alway want to know that too. (where they could be used) not for the $ but it's a waist throughing them out when some people would kill for them! besides it might be nice to try the soup if I knew the right guy that could cook it. (he'd be happy, I'd be happy just to try it.)threshers don't eat nearly as good as a mako.!
