The dead sharks probably have not been added Jan . What a cruel business it is !! I always see the photo published last week with the thousands of fins drying on a Hongkong roof top.
But as long as there is a market for it, the sharks will be hunted. Until extinction.....
Signed. Worse than China eating shark fin soup here we have Australia contributing to the brutality by trading the fins! An international ban on the whole atrocious disgusting practice needs to be implemented.
I wonder if when they did this report that came out yesterday about the amount of food the world throws away, did they count all the sharks who subsequently die when they are thrown back after their fins are sliced off. I bet they did not.

Those responsible for this horror should be thrown off the roof tops - that includes the killers and the eaters of shark fin soup. Those who eat this are amongst the most selfish revolting people on the planet. To swallow this obsene bowl of death KNOWING that sharks have had their fins cut off and then they have been thrown back in the sea to drown requires a degree of callousness beyond compare.

It is difficult to believe that countries were voting against the proposal. But I guess this is a start and would never have happened without the huge exposure shark finning has had over the last couple of years.

Keep the Fins On
We’re on the brink of a decision. After years of sustained pressure to close loopholes in the EU finning ban, we’re anticipating a decision on this hotly debated issue this week. Project AWARE has been pounding the pavement in Brussels, Belgium, to encourage Members of EU Parliament (MEPs) to protect sharks from finning. Read More

Thank you Monika.
New ones all done. Thank you Monika!
Every year, the fins of tens of thousands of sharks are sliced off and their bodies tossed back into the sea, often whilst still alive. It's a terribly cruel and wasteful practice.
This vote is an important opportunity to strengthen one of the weakest finning bans in the world and to help protect many tens of thousands of sharks from a terrible fate every year.
The new proposal, put forward by the European Commission, would ensure that all sharks caught by EU-owned vessels are landed with their fins naturally attached, leaving no opportunity for finning to take place at sea.
Please help ensure sharks receive the much-needed protection they so urgently deserve. Ask your MEP to vote in favour of a fins naturally attached policy without exception.
