I am as a Chinese do not fancy or find anything good about shark fin soup. Hate to see those pictures of sharks that have fins cut off. In addition to sharks, eating turtles and dogs are also crazy and should be ban.
Thank you Raymond, love the way you think! We need more people like you...
I support a worldwide ban on this capitalist driven activity
Anyelo a raison il faut arrêter de manger du requin , mais surtout demander au peuple Chinois de ne plus en faire venir chez eux , seulement les ailerons qui sont soi-disant aphrodisiaque ????
j'en doute , mais en attendant les massacres continus et les pauvres bêtes sont même pas tuer avant cela est monstrueux , quand les hommes auront compris cela , ils auront peut être une chance d'êtres sauvaient , qu''ont les laissent dans leur milieu regardons les juste vivrent !
No more shark finning, too cruel and unnecessary.
This is horrific. Sharks are some of the cleaners of the oceans. If destroyed, our oceans will be nothing more than a rotting swamp. We are the wasters of this earth... primitive tribes and animals know you only use what you need, replenish and nurture earth. We 'civilized' folks haven't seemed to have learned that lesson yet. Most of the earth is water, how shameful it will be when it becomes a slimy, putrid mess of a swamp.
I think this will end :)

How did you get a shot of a shark on the beach finned? They sink like rocks after. Even if they drift on the beach, not on that angle and not that good a condition, Whale Sharks aren't likely either to be finned, too hard, fining is done by the lazier types. Quick score idiots. That photo is a set up though, some sick human being may have finned it rather than putting the beached Whale Shark back in the water, that's pretty cruel too, since we are making assumptions of all shark fishing, why not this?
As horrible this is some people do fish a whole shark, should they sell the other parts and leave the fins on the boat? It's a customs matter, they should punish people who have more fins than shark bodies. I agree that fining is cruel, but no one should assume that all fins comes from fining. It takes a proper inspection. Some people eat shark meat too that isn't fin related. The tradition argument is weak, the presumptions of fining in all cases are weaker.
