Shark Finning is depleting our shark population one day at a time. It is inhumane and incredibly painful to the animal. Without sharks we cannot have a healthy underwater ecosystem. This crisis is just getting worse and worse because of the growing demand. Every second, three sharks are caught and brutally killed. The fin is chopped off while the animal is still alive and it is thrown back to die of suffocation, drowning, bleeding out, or being eaten by other animals. Within a few decades sharks will be completely wiped out forever. This is devastating to the oceans because sharks are the apex predator and keep everything in check with the way things should be.
