SHARKS Are The Victims!

The unprecendented growth of the Chinese economy over the recent years has created an insatiable demand for shark fins of any size and type! To add to the enormous problem of over-fishing of sharks, advances in science and technology have made shipbuilding and navigational electronics more sophisticated in that shark fishing boats could now go anywhere in the world fast, thus, reducing the time taken for located 'shark spots' and making fishing much quicker! This has made local shark populations diminish rapidly right before our eyes! The whole problem lies in the fact that the fins are now so much more valuable than the rest of the shark that the carcass is discarded after the fins are removed, to save storage space on the boat. The fins are just sliced off when the shark is still alive and the mutilated shark is dumped back into the water to die a slow and agonizing death!!

Why should we be concerned? Without sharks, the whole experience of being in a natural ocean wilderness would be immeasurably reduced. It would be like being on the Serengeti with no lions or cheetahs. In losing the opportunity to view these magnificent and superbly-adapted predators in the wild, we are also losing part of our spiritual connection with nature.
