Caption

Finned blacktip reef shark (Carcharhinus melanopterus) dumped overboard by fishermen. 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.
