I hate shark finning. An estimated 70 million sharks are killed each year and over a third are killed just for their fins. People use their fins for soup.
First, if we keep killing the sharks they will all be gone. Killing the sharks stops the immune system of the ocean. Sick fish will not be eaten and they will pollute the ocean.
Second, it is cruel to the sharks. Fishermen just cut off their fins and throw them back in the water and leave them to drown. Stop killing the sharks!
