Sharks Fins

Sharks Fins

Sharks are members of the class Chondrichthyes (Phylum Chordata). Shark fins removed generally are a combination of fins that fishermen retain for commercial purposes in each vessel or fleet. The fins are generally removed by means of straight or "L" cut, tending towards a moon or half-moon cut for the pectoral and dorsal fins. Small fins are usually discarded. Fins are wet weighed immediately after removal, since, when dry, it was impossible to identify their origin.
