Shark fishing in Oman
Swimming near the Oman coast, an oceanic black tip shark smells a wounded fish. Not knowing that it is in fact a ledger-bait he bites and the hook runs through his jaw. So begin the last minutes of his life and a long journey of his meat. Sharks are at the top of the oceans’ food chain and play a very important role in their ecosystem. The last decade saw a huge increase in demand for shark fins, mainly from Chinese customers driven by myths about their effect on male sexual power. Due to overfishing some types of sharks are near extinction and others are considered endangered.
