Thousands of shark fins dry on the rooftop on a building in Kennedy Town, Hong Kong. Environmentalists want China to outlaw the trade and practice of shark finning, where fins are chopped off the sharks and the bodies thrown back into the water to die. It is estimated that up to 75,000 sharks a year are killed to fulfil the demand in Hong Kong and mainland China for shark fin soup, which is considered a delicacy that is popular in traditional banquets and weddings. Shark fin also has the reputation of benefiting health and boosting sexual potency. | image by Antony Dickson
