Shark fin soup is considered a delicacy in many Eastern cultures, but the facts behind how it’s made are hard to swallow: up to 70 million sharks per year are killed for shark fin soup. With so many sharks perishing in this industry, it’s throwing the marine ecosystem out of whack. “Breaking Bad” actor, Aaron Paul, is putting the word out about a documentary that shines light on this gruesome issue.

Paul tweeted: My good friend made this important film about shark finning & he could use your support. Pls chk it: @ExtinctionSoup

Paul included a link to the Indiegogo fundraising page for the “Extinction Soup” documentary. The film starts out following filmmaker, Philip Waller, as he tells the story of his “larger-than-life friend and extreme sports legend,” Jimmy Hall. The doc’s focus shifts when Waller learns more about shark finning and its threat of shark extinction and environmental havoc, all for soup. Waller also follows activist, Stefanie Brendl as she reaches out to lawmakers and tries to pass legislation to curb shark fin soup consumption.

Check out the trailer for “Extinction Soup,” and check out their Indiegogo page for details on donating toward the film’s production. Be warned: there are some gruesome images of fins being sliced off of sharks, as well as clips of bloodied and dead sharks.
