Shark Finning video

The link below takes you to an interesting video highlighting the need to ban shark finning. It could happen in our life time,  sharks could become extinct and this will a have a huge effect on our seas. Shark finning is an incredibly wasteful activity with up to 90% of the shark being discarded (often still alive) back into the sea where they will die. The importance of sharks, not simply as a singular group, but as moderators of wider ecosystems is often overlooked. Sharks play a vital role at the top of many marine ecosystems, ensuring balance is maintained.
