I had no idea that Shark-finning was a thing, seeing the way that sharks are caught, and, how their fins are collected is sickening. I totally agree with Ramsey and believe this is an awful and heartbreaking act of cruelty towards Sharks.

Other than that, the video itself is a great insight into issues like Shark-finning, and I'd like to see more videos of this kind of nature, to raise awareness of the cruelties behind some food production companies.

A worthwhile watch
Verified purchase
I find sharks mesmerizing, they are gliding monsters under the surface of the water and deserve to be respected.

The sharkfin industry should be abolished outright, across all waters internationally.

Gordon Ramsey takes a good look at the industry here however be prepared as it does have some disturbing scenes of just how cruel humans really are and the lengths some go to for a bowl of soup.

STOP eating SHARK FIN and animal cruelty!!
Verified purchase
At the start, I was reluctant to watch this documentary as I wasn't sure what Gordon has to do with sharks.
Similar to his documentary on cocaine, Gordon actually goes on a mission to show us all how cruel the fishing and killing of sharks is just because certain people like to eat their fins (which apparently are taste-less!!)... We need to protect all sharks and especially rare species before they will all go extinct.

Humans are really such horrible creatures
Verified purchase
The more I watch these types of programmes it makes me hate the human species more and more. We as a majority are so selfish and heartless.

Currently a petition to ban shark fins altogether in U.K has garnered over 10,000 signatures.

Great documentary, and as a result of more people becoming aware of this monstrous practice, a petition was started to ban shark fins being bought into the U.K and to be made illegal to export them from any country to U.K shores. Now we are leaving E.U the government has more freedom to tighten the trading laws. Let's go that step further and campaign to have international laws in protecting all shark species from any type of fishing and disturbance in their natural environment.

Stop killing our eco-system
Verified purchase
This is an excellent documentary. Gordon and his team have shown just how cruel and pointless shark finning is. Killing 60% of sharks in Costa Rica in 9 years to make shark fin soup! it was heartbreaking to see these marvellous animals being treated like this by over populated humans.
Hopefully the film will create awareness to stop this Asian tradition.

Absolutely inspiring for what Gordon Ramsay has achieved and i hope in the near future his Trust organisation will eradicate the industry in shark fin soup. It serves no purpose for us as human. We as human are at the top of our food chain on land and the sharks are too below sea level. Lets create that boundary and keep the peace from one prime predator too another.
