To start with, sharks are endangered as it is; with some species being highly endangered. Killing those sharks just for soup or something like that, is just hurting the oceans ecosystem. Whether you realize it or not, you might not even know this, sharks ACTUALLY HELP our oceans. The sharks help keep the fish population at a perfect amount, if sharks were to go extinct, the fish population would explode and our oceans would be filled with large and small fishes. If the fish population were to explode, the coral reef would get destroyed as a result. Some fish use the coral reef as a home, as well as some fish even eat it...or at least I'm pretty sure some do........Anyways, sharks shouldn't be killed for their fins, they help our oceans. And besides, some sharks are ACTUALLY PEACEFUL ones. A couple of examples are the Greenland shark, a sleeper shark that is basically inactive and moves slowly; the Whale shark, a large, peaceful and filter eater - meaning they eat krill and plankton - divers swim with and take pictures with this shark when they can; and lastly the Basking shark, another large, filter eater shark.
