Did you know*…

> It’s estimated that 90 percent of all large sharks have been wiped out

> That as many as 73-million sharks have been killed by the shark-finning industry

> That sharks have existed on this planet for 450-million years

I took this photograph in The Bahamas when I was on a shark expedition. I was busy with a small group of lemon sharks when from two sides, these two sharks met and touched each other. It took only a second, but I had my shot. I see this image as a symbol against the cruel billion-Euro shark finning business.
