IF Correspondent Min Poh Exclusive from Malaysia Fish Market

Poaching Victims are Getting
Smaller and Smaller - Uncovered
by Min Poh
These pictures were taken at the Sandakan Market in Sabah, Malaysia yesterday morning January 15th.

These sharks were probably bycatch by trawlers.

The first picture shows baby white tip sharks (my guess, harvested for their fins since they had been cut off!).

These were very small, juvenile sharks.

The second picture is a bamboo shark... couldn't see any wounds on it, so it may have drowned in a net.

The third picture shows several baby bamboo sharks that had just arrived at the market from a trawler.
