Shark Finning and Shark Fishing Photos Showing This Abusive Practice

Top Right Solid Corner

Some species of shark have decreased in number by 80% in the last 50 years. This is not due to the market for shark fin alone. Many sharks are caught by commercial fishing boats as bycatch. Some charter fishing boats fish sharks for sport, though this activity represents a minor number of sharks killed compared to the number taken as commercial bycatch. Sharks have such a nasty reputation, due to movies like "Jaws" and sensationalist TV programs, that it is difficult to motivate the general public to take a stand to preserve our remaining sharks. Some progress has been made toward banning shark finning in the Atlantic Ocean, the Mediterranean Sea, and the Eastern Pacific Ocean. Unfortunately, the rest of the world's oceans are still open to unlimited shark abuse. Be aware that many of these photos are graphic and disturbing.
