Indonesia is number 1 in a shark culling industry. There are a few seafood markets in this country that are filled with sharks. Tanjung Luar seafood market is a place where you can witness not only what the shark finning industry is about, but also the other side of the story. The site where you understand the fisherman and his need for work. His need to support the family. There is a huge opportunity to start changing the industry in this area by supporting shark tourism. Lucia will make a shark talk, she will take you to the market, explain to you what is our project about and show you what is our vision for this place.
