Every year close to 100 million sharks lose their lives. Mostly killed for their fins alone which are seen as a delicacy in China and southeast Asia.

Richard Pierce of the Shark Conservation Society and the Shark Trust in the UK together with Steve Bowes and Simon Spear is working on a documentary entitled The Fin Trail which highlights this trade from beginning to end around the world.

The Trust together withMarine Dynamics Shark Tourshave made a small donation to support this initiative.
