Heh, true.mI still figured though, as sharkfin fishing in looked down upon in most the world. But I guess its alos ture that not that many europeans understand the damage it causes both to individual sharks and to the overall population of sharks. I mean, most of them are not dead when they tear out the fins, I hear.

That's right they throw the whole body back alive to go drown and be eaten. It's a giant waste.But because the owners of the boats are greedy they only want sharkfins, the whole body of a shark would occupy too much space. So yes it's a horrible pratice that has shark populations in peril worldwide .

thanks for you comment :)

I don't understand why, if they would like continue using sharks for food, they begin farming and breeding sharks, and if for simply the fins, breed sharks with larger fins (maybe GM some regenerative properties), instead killing and mutilating wild sharks ?!

They dont want to invest money in creating the infrastructure plus sharks need a lot of space to move around. They rather pillage the oceans.

thank you
