Why are fins traded?

The fins of sharks are considered a high-profile ingredient in shark fin soup. It is considered a delicacy at Asian weddings, company parties and birthdays and can cost up to several hundred euros per bowl.
After catching the sharks all the fins are cut off and the remaining carcasses thrown back into the sea. During this mutilation, the animals are usually fully conscious, and, no longer able to swim, sink to the seabed where they bleed to death or suffocate.

What is #StopFinningEU ?

Sea Shepherd has united with NGOs and citizens from across Europe to demand the end of the shark fin trade in the European Union (EU) and increase the protection of these fragile but key species. This trade relies on the wasteful and unethical practice of cutting the fins off sharks and discarding the animal back into the ocean while it is often still alive. Because of their high commercial value and use in a traditional soup in Asian culture the practice of shark finning still occurs and Europe is one of the major players in the global fin trade.
