Most sharks are caught in nets, but because the fins are so valuable, these sharks are finned and their bodies thrown back into the sea whilst they suffer pain, close their eyes, wriggle and gape.
These sharks are inhumanely finned while they are still alive.
The fins only make up a mere 5% of the animals bodyweight so one can work out how many fins for a bowl of soup.
Here the Shark Lady has the privilege of seeing the recovery of one of the Great White Sharks that she named ‘Slashfin’ as his Dorsal Fin had been injured. He has been returning to ‘Shark Alley’ for over 6 years, and has grown by at least one and a half metres.
