hhmmm, you must be from another country Scottie? Animal abuse is world wide. WE AS AMERICANS SPEAK FOR ALL ANIMALS NO MATTER WHERE THEY ARE LOCATED ON THE GLOBE.

Shark fin is a very popular and considered to be expensive food in Hong Kong & China. But as soon as I learned how they abandon the shark after cutting their fin, I feel so sick to have the shark fin soup. I won't take it and won't let my family ordering it in any eating out occasions. It works and now most restaurants in Hong Kong are not selling shark fin soup. I'm glad the society is changing since the awareness has been brought up

That's right Yoly. People need to be aware of the process of their food before it ends up on their plate. This to me is very important.

have you gone out with a fishing boat to see them cut off the fin and throw the shark back in to drown? no? then have you been to australia to have fish and chips? cuz the fish fillet in fish and chips in australia uses shark meat. so no matter what, whether you have fins for dinner or not, sharks are still dying. be more aware of the underlying problem of society, earning money riding on their whims and facies of "donating to stop finning".

Why just take the fins? Look, if you aren't going to eat the entire shark, why take only the fins? This is a waste of food because so many people are starving! I'm not vegetarian, but holy hell, just taking the fins off of something and leaving it to die is a sin! For shame!

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?

Gölök Zoltán Leenderdt Buday

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.

It is a shame to cause suffering to living things, haven't we learned yet. Just like the senseless killing of baby seals, whales & dolphins. Time to reflect on Farley Mowat's "Sea of Slaughter".
