Why Are So Many Sharks Killed?
Scientists point to one main contributing factor that is causing this rapid decline in total world shark population: shark finning.

Shark finning is a specific type of shark fishing, wherein fishermen hunt solely for shark skin and flesh, which in turn, can be used for merchandise, food and other purposes.

The rate of finning has increased dramatically since 1970, which accounts for the drastic decrease in shark population since then.

Shark fin soup is a popular delicacy in China and other East Asian countries, which rely on a consistent shark finning industry in order to prepare the dish.




Have a nice day?
