Caption: Dead sharks. Pile of dead juvenile hammerhead sharks (Sphyrna sp.) that have been discarded after having their fins removed. Shark fins are used to make soup, and fetch a high price. The shark's meat is not valued, so the body is discarded. Although the practice is banned in many countries millions of sharks are finned every year, leading to rapidly declining shark populations.

Release details: Model release not required. Property release not required.
