In Costa Rica there is a legal loophole which permits that sharks can be finning. That means that it is legal that you slice their fins off meanwhile the shark keep alive. Of course, when this people toss back the animal to water it dies by massive bleeding but in Costa Rica this is legal because they have not killed it.

Shark fins are used in Chinese medicine and for make soups, fact that makes this product in the market very princely and exquisite but this is not justify the barbaric actions that some people is commenting against this animals.

Actually, Care 2 has a petition to try to stop of this murdering. If you are agree that this acts cannot continue anymore please sign it.
