    finning sharks is when sharks are fished up and their fins are cut off, these are then sold (normally to east asia) to make meals such as shark fin soup which is considered a delicacy in some parts. Often the sharks are then just thrown back to the sea to die as the rest of the body is not wanted

    You see, its when a shark finally becomes a man, and loses their fin, then sprout beautiful wings and fly towards the sun. God, i love wikipedia.

    I was almost taking it seriously until the voice at the end made it sound like a film trailer.

    It`s quite an effective advert, although I don`t think it will make much difference. Things like shark finning happen all over the world, it`s just the way the industry works. Yes it`s cruel, but one person can`t make a difference, and this will sadly continue to happen.

    "I am pretty sure it`s not millions."

    Guess again.

    http://www.sharkwater.com/education.htm
    "Shark specialists estimate that 100 million sharks are killed for their fins, annually."

    http://www.seashepherd.org/sharks/
    "With 90% of the world`s large shark populations already wiped out, sharks are being depleted faster than they can reproduce. This threatens the stability of marine ecosystems around the world. Sharks are vitally important apex predators. They have shaped marine life in the oceans for over 400 million years and are essential to the health of the planet, and ultimately to the survival of mankind. Sea Shepherd patrols marine protected areas, exposing the corruption that drives this multi-billion dollar industry and directly intervening to stop the brutal slaughter of sharks."

    If you watch this without audio you get an entirely different message. Kind of counter productive if someone`s muted the TV or computer.

    Meh ad.
    Would have been more clever to see the people get mauled by a shark, because there was no hollywood style fin sticking out of the water to warn them it was there. (Even if it wasn`t accurate, due to sharks dying from being de-finned).

    It makes sense to me. It`s like the anti-smoking ads in the late nineties where the person had blackened burned skin and it said, "If you looked like this on the outside, you wouldn`t smoke."

    Well, it is graphic and ugly. Just like reality. I don`t know which (if any) species of sharks may or may not be endangered but killing them only to cut off their fins and leave the carcasses to rot is extremely wasteful and very, very wrong.

    Right on the head of the nail. This kind of sick stuff like this needs to be known. I`ve spoken to a Sea Shepard crew member, it`s horrible what they can do to sea animals behind human society`s back.

    @Norris - Eco Terrorist lies? No, they`re truths, stop living in denial.

    Meh. I mean, the least they could do is eat the whole thing (the shark that is). Same with my opinion on hunting- trophy hunting is wrong, for food, it isn`t. I suppose it isn`t that black-and-white, though...

    I know exactly what they do to millions of sharks without shock tactics like this. And you know what, i dont care.Its another cultures chiken and beef. To simplify the issue.Look at all the things your taxes do to enable you government to treat, again chiken and beef, the way they do.
