Shark finning is a brutal way of collecting dorsal and pectoral fins in order to make the Asian delicacy shark-fin soup. When the sharks are caught, their fins are cut off while they are alive and then their bodies are tossed back into the water. Since sharks breathe via ram-jet ventilation (constantly moving forward to pass water over their gills) without fins they sink to the bottom, and unable to swim, they drown. Check out the websites above to learn more about shark finning and what is being done to try and stop it.
