Wetpixel conservation moderator Shawn Heinrichs is heavily featured in a recent Dan Rather Reports episode about shark finning, which aired Tuesday, Jan 24, 2012 on HDNet. “All for a Bowl of Soup” is the most no-nonsense piece I’ve seen about the global shark finning problem. It combines facts with awe-inspiring footage of thousands of shark fins being pulled into a single fisheries facility in a single day.
