Man & Shark

© Kees Metselaar 1996

Shark finning has been going on for a long time but with the economic growth of especially China the numbers of killed sharks are exploding.
Paul Hilton and Alex Hofford, based in Hong Kong, have now produced a book and short film
'Man & Shark', which explores the practice of shark-finning.

In Hong Kong I live in Sheung Wan, shark fin wholesale area.
Also once in Tobelo in the North Moluccas in Indonesia I photographed local fishermen with just cut shark fins. See picture above.
