The ability to communicate online and express individual opinions can have a positive or negative impact on a business. However, it also allows for further conversation and the possibility to come to a positive resolution. The most recent issue that has sparked a debate online is the process of shark finning.

According to Infograph Design there are over 1.8 million sharks mercilessly killed during Shark Week. These numbers also include those sharks that die as a result of shark finning. The process of shark finning is the removal and retaining of a shark’s fin before they are tossed back into the ocean. Without the fins a shark can succumb to long-lasting injuries and become unable to defend themselves against predators.

During Shark Week there are social media debates being waged about the benefit of shark finning. Because of the popularity of shark fin soup in places such as China there has been an increase in the process of shark finning. The dish is one of the most expensive seafood selections available.  It is often something that is eaten during special occasions or at events.

The infographic shows that by the end of Shark Week will bring about the death of over 1.8 million sharks. This means that every second there will be three sharks killed.
