Extinction Soup [documentary]. Sharks killed by millions for fin alone. Fisherman cut off fins and throw back for shark to drown. Seafood options have changed drastically. Now much fraud in seafood industry. Avoid mercury by remembering larger fish have greatest concentration as more time to accumulate. We all need to buy sustainable fish that reproduces quickly to feed the 7 billion people in world that will go to 8 billion. http://www.smarthealthtalk.com/sustainable-seafood-shopping.html
Photo by @BrianSkerry A Shortfin Mako Shark in New Zealand swims open-mouthed at photographer Brian Skerry. Makos are one of the fastest fish in the sea, capable of bursts up to 60mph and of all shark species they have one of the largest brains, relative to body size. The numbers of makos have declined worldwide due to over fishing and the demand for shark fins. They are currently listed as vulnerable.
