Shark Finning and Shark Fishing Photos Showing Graphic and Disturbing Practices

Top Right Solid Corner

The world economy does not favor the prospect of shark survival in the coming decades. Many countries provide huge subsidies to their fishing industry to continue to plunder an increasingly stressed population of fish. The Japanese government provides some $2-3 billion dollars annually to its fishing industry. The EU spends another 2 billion + (1.4 billion Euros), and the US provides $1 billion annually as fishing subsidies. Even the Russian government is replacing old fishing trawlers with new factory fishing vessels. Very little money, on the other hand, is devoted to fish stock assessments and stock recovery plans. With so many sharks caught as bycatch, and with the world market for shark fin on an upward trajectory, sharks may be, in the near future, an animal that we read about, but seldom see, even in aquariums. Be aware that many of these photos are graphic and disturbing.
