We Have To Stop This, Every single day in Deira Fish Market, Dubai, UAE , like in dozens other fish markets in the Gulf hundreds of sharks are killed for their fins. This is just a daily catch, one of two each day. That day we counted 34 Thresher sharks (extremely engendered, close to extinction), 45 Bull sharks, 12 greater hammerheads, 11 scalloped hammerheads, 8 gray reefs, 5 tiger sharks, and 5 baby Great white!!!, dozens of oceanic white tips (longimanus), black tips and many more.

Feeding frenzy! Most evenings at 5pm Charlie throws the heads and innards of his daily catch to the sharks on the ocean side of the island. This is done on the ocean side to avoid whipping up the sharks in the anchorage and around the yachts into a similar frenzy
