How are sharks finned? Why are they finned?

Answer

Sharks, often while still alive, are pulled from the ocean after fighting for hours if not days on long lines. The fins sliced off and the animal is thrown back into the sea, unable to move, to die a slow and painful death – either suffocating, bleeding to death or being eaten alive.

The majority of sharks’ fins are used for shark fin soup. Another major concern is that shark products (such as squallene and shark oil ) are used for a shocking amount of different products, including energy drinks, vitamins, pet supplements, dog toys, lipsticks, lotions, shark leather, and vaccines.
