Troubled Waters

Record #:
UNC marine scientists identified and analyzed over 300 sharks seized from illegal shark fishing in the Galápagos. The fishermen were planning to sell the sharks because they have high market value in China for shark fin soup. Marine scientists acknowledge that fishermen need to eat and have jobs, but sharks are also an economic resource for tourism and diving operations.
