A Shark For A Fin

A fisherman displays his fresh harvest of shark fins. Sharks are captured live and their fins are cut off before throwing them back into the sea, where they eventually die. Shark fins are a key ingredient in shark-fin soup, and an increase in demand for the fins is causing great harm to the populations of the apex predators.
