Big catch: A worker pushes a cart of sharks at the Muara Angke fish auction in North Jakarta on Friday. Sharks, often captured by fishermen in the Java Sea, are a high-value commodity but are endangered due to the high number of captures. Sharks are often captured only for their fins, while their carcasses are dumped back into the sea or processed into salted fish. (JP/PJ Leo)
