These sharks are being slaughtered to make "Shark Fin Soup" mainly in Asian restaurants across the world. Their population has decreased by 50% in the last 10 years. Do Not Order Shark Fin Soup - to help stop this massacre.
Great white sharks are like the grizzly bears of the sea. What may start as a peaceful and beautiful encounter can go completely south in a split second. Wild animals must ALWAYS be treated with respect and caution.
