Shark Finning and Shark Fishing Photos Showing This Practice that is Endangering Sharks

Top Right Solid Corner

In China and other countries of East Asia, shark fin soup represents a special honor to guests on ceremonial occasions. This is a time-honored tradition, going back to the days when sharks were difficult to catch and consequently rare. In the days before refrigerators, shark fins could be dried and preserved for long periods of time. This convenience factor helped promote shark products among the general public. Now, due to a combination of advanced fishing methods, gigantic ocean-going fish factories, and sky-rocketing world-wide demand, shark numbers have reached a critical point of near extinction, and the recovery of some species is in serious doubt. Be aware that many of these photos are graphic and disturbing.
