Shiver: Shark Finning in Mozambique seeks to expose the “dark and brutal realities” of the finning industry. One of the producers, Dave Charley says:
“In Mozambique, like many countries the world over, local fishermen are paid handsomely for supplying middlemen with dried shark fins - the fishermen oblivious to what the fins are used for,” he said. “Coupled with increasingly sophisticated boats and fishing techniques, the demand for shark fin soup has ensured that we have lost an estimated 90 per cent of sharks in the last 50 years, with 30 per cent of species now listed as endangered or critically endangered.
“Three sharks a second are being killed, many having their fins sliced off while still alive.”
