Shark finning

Harpoon

 

I hate shark finning, it’s a complete waste of a magnificent creature. I fail to understand why people would want to eat shark fin soup, especially as it is actually harmful to human health. It contains all the toxins that have built up in the food chain before it, not to mention the presence of methylmercury which can cause neurological and heart problems.

Sharks were here long before us and if it weren’t for humans then they’d most likely still be here at the end of the world. The above image is from a year 2 project at university where I had to create an informational piece around the subject of ‘fish’. I’ve always loved sharks and I’m devastated at how quickly species are becoming endangered during my short lifetime on this planet.
