But Oceana would like to see GrubHub to do more than follow the letter of local and state laws - "Take a stand for sharks by removing restaurants still offering shark fin products from your company website," the petition reads.
"Oceana is concerned that GrubHub is offering shark fin products for sale across the United States," said Jacqueline Savitz, Oceana's vice president of U.S. oceans, in a statement. "We have asked the company to take action and are currently in discussions with GrubHub about whether it will agree to stop selling shark fin products."
GrubHub confirmed it has been in contact with Oceana and will meet next week to discuss the issue of restaurants selling shark fin soup.
Savitz noted that other companies have ceased selling shark fin products; Amazon and Disney no longer do so, Oceana said in the petition. "However, at this time, [GrubHub] is still offering these products for sale in some states," Savitz said, "so we hope that customers will make their feelings on this known to the company through our petition or on their own."
