Our weekly feature at Underwater Thrills:Swimming With Sharks is the "Shark Fin Du Jour".
It's a look at Alibaba.com the NYSE of shark fin products on the Internet-Sponsored by Yahoo! Inc.
We will take you into the individual sellers listed on that site and introduce the top companies, what species they sell, and how many thousands of pounds of shark fins they have for sale on the global market.
Today our Shark Fin Du Jour is Stavcorp Australia Pty Ltd who can source a stunning 10 tons of sharks fins a month and who have a minimum order of shark fin via Alibaba.com of 3000 kilograms or 6500 pounds-per order.
To put this into perspective 10 tons of sharks fin equals roughly 11,000 dead sharks-per order.
