A Federal judge charged five Japanese nationals Tuesday, with helping traffic and smuggle nearly 1,000 shark fins in and out of Hawaii last month. 

Street value? Nearly $58,000. 

New photos show the shark fins are laid out in a parking lot. Some of them from Oceanic Whitetip Sharks, which are listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act. Others are from silky and big eye thresher sharks. 

Court documents show the Japanese fishing vessel MV Kyoshin Maru Number 20 was used for long line tuna-fishing in the South Pacific for about a year. 

During the voyage, the crew allegedly harvested fins from about 300 sharks then threw the carcasses into the ocean.

The fishermen were stopped from boarding flights to Indonesia after the Transportation Security Administration found the fins in checked luggage.
