Prosthetic Shark Fin[Fauna]
Deadline: Sunday, March 10
Over 100 millions sharks are killed each year for shark fin related delicacies. In the future, the death of a shark for its fins is illegal worldwide and an international watchdog agency has been created to monitor and enforce this, and other similar situations. However, shark fin is still poached no matter that the repercussions are extreme and include huge fines and up to 15 years in prison. This being the case, an alternative method of harvesting fin has been bargained for- a shark may be captured, rendered unconscious, fins surgically removed and a prosthetic replacement attached. This of course, it ridiculously expensive even beyond the thousands of dollars that can be earned from the sale of the meat. To offset costs, the fins have also become aquatic information gathering tools for a variety of sectors including environmental research and sea bed geological ventures being but two examples.
You are to pick a funding sector and design the fin that corresponds. Include a graphic showing how the fin integrates into the shark's body.
