Shocking PSA against the cruelties of shark finning
Shark finning refers to the “barbaric” practice of capturing sharks and slicing off their fins. Since shark meat isn’t considered valuable and therefore not worth the cost of transporting the massive shark bodies to market, the finless creatures (which are most often alive) are thrown back into the water. Without its fins the shark simply sinks beneath the ocean where it likely won’t survive.
Shark fins are used as an Asian delicacy – primarily as the main ingredient in shark fin soup.
