If Washington, D.C., can have Sharknado, then San Francisco can observe Sharktoberfest, an effort by Shark Stewards and the Gulf of the Farallones National Marine Sancutary to draw attention to their efforts to end the killing of sharks for use in shark fin food. The event will be held Saturday, Oct. 5, 1–4 p.m., at Vessel Outer Limits (10 Marina Blvd).

Shark Stewards also used the occasion of the America’s Cup off the Marina’s shoreline to call on New Zealand, home to the challenging team, to end shark finning in its waters. “It is a senseless waste to be killing sharks just for their fins and dumping their bodies,” said marine advocate Milena Palka.
