A company based in Nottingham is helping to threaten the survival of some shark species.
“It has come to light that Nottingham is host to one of the few companies in the UK that sell shark fin. Not only is the finning of sharks barbaric, but their indiscriminate slaughter at an unsustainable rate is pushing many species to the brink of extinction.
Since the 1970s the populations of several species have been decimated by over 95%.

The company is said to have a factory based in Somalia and able to supply up to 1000 ton of dried shark fin a month.”
