SHARK FIN SOUP?! ARE YOU KIDDING ME???

Humans kill 100 million sharks a year
...and for what?

shark fins for a tasteless bowl of soup
shark teeth for jewelry
shark jaws for tourist souvenirs

100 million sharks are killed each year-by longlines, by "sport" fishermen, or by a barbaric practice known as shark finning. Hooked sharks are hauled onto boats; their fins are sliced off while they are still alive. These helpless animals are then tossed back into the ocean where, unable to swim without their fins, they sink towards the bottom and die an agonizing death.
