How long is it before sharks die when thrown back into the ocean after having its fins removed?

    Presumably quickly, though it is probably not pretty. Certain species are known to have lost the ability to pump water over their gills, thus requiring them to be swimming constantly to breathe. Losing the fins pretty much sentences a shark to suffocation while falling toward the bottom of the sea, if predators don’t catch them first. And seeing as how sharks are dumped right where they are fished, there are plenty of other sharks around that can get them. It’s a terrible practice.

    If we catch people doing this do you know if we charge them for animal cruelty as well.
