The nine victims want a ban on finning, a gruesome practice in which fishermen cut off a fin for shark fin soup and then dump the fish back in the water to drown or bleed to death.

I love sharks and i really hope that my son gets to see them in and love them too when he’s older.

Btw, we didn’t have sharks fin soup at our wedding dinner
