Shark Finning is the process were most sharks (including endangered species such as the Hammerhead and Great White) are pulled from the sea. Once they are caught, whilst still alive the fins are cut from their body then the carcass is thrown back into the sea most of the time they are still alive.
This is mostly for the production of the Shark Fin Soup commonly found in Asian Cuisine (which can be found described as ‘tasteless’). I have chosen this charity as I feel it is a wasteful and incredibly harmful practice to these animals and the ecosystem they belong to.

Shark finning is banned in EU waters and in the Mediterranean - where sharks must be landed with their fins naturally attached. This method is promoted as the best way to enforce finning bans and the Shark Trust encourages high seas management bodies to improve fisheries management by adopting this regulation and removing loopholes that potentially allow finning to occur.
