"Lies. 100,079,252.77 sharks per YEAR? A little bit of research into the reproduction cycle of sharks shows that they reproduce relatively slowly and some shark species take 20-30 years to reach sexual maturity. Why does every "animal rights" ass hat have to lie?"

First of all, if you're going to claim something is a lie then be sure to give a reference that contains the truth.
Secondly, less than half of those 100 million are killed for shark fins. Baby sharks, unlike grown ones, are considered a delicacy in many places and account for half of the annual shark capture.

And lastly, sharks mate about once every 3 years and their litters can reach up to 100 sharks. They reach maturity in 15 years and their average life span is 30. So, with a normal life-span years a female sharks can make 250 baby sharks on average. 125 of those will make 250 more, and so on. In 45 you can turn 2 sharks into 20 million sharks. Really slow.

@CreamK
What you said makes no sense whatsoever. If we can hunt them then we can eat them if we want. We're at the top of the food chain now, we don`t share that place with any other species, so we get to eat whatever we want. We don`t eat lions or wolves or polar bears because not only are they endangered species but we can only find them in specific parts of the globe. It would be extremely expensive to get lion meat and it probably wouldn`t taste as good as beef, chicken or pork.
Sharks, apart from their fins, don`t taste very good either, so only their fins are gathered. However, unlike lions and polar bears, sharks are everywhere.
