Stop Shark Finning Awareness Logo
Finning is the term that defines the major problem that threatens sharks. It’s the act of cutting the fins from a shark for soup. The fins are its only mode of movement and in many cases the de-finned sharks are thrown still alive back into the water to drown. The high demand for shark fins (their only use is to make a traditional Chinese soup) has resulted in an increase in the poaching of shark fins. The effect of this is that sharks are being over fished. The majority of people in China are not aware that shark fin soup contains shark because the actual translation is, “fish wing soup”. I believe the Western world’s indifference to this practice stems from the fact that humans have been taught to understand sharks as being nothing but vicious and dangerous.
