Shark fin soup (92)

Is shark fin soup destroying the shark population.?

A rising demand for shark fin soup is wiping out more than 73 million sharks every year, fuelling a practice labelled the marine “gold rush”. Finning, when a shark’s fin is sliced off while at sea and the body dumped back into the ocean, is rampant in many regions – fins are one of the most expensive seafood items, ending up mostly in soup.

I realise that yes we breed, hunt and kill animals for our existence but this to me is abhorrent when a shark's fins are cut off while still alive then tossed back into the ocean. Fins are for sharks not for soup.

What's your take on this ?

Morning from the U.K epirb.

Hardly a comparison however tragic . They look upon anything in their ocean as potential food.

Another interesting article.

I was watching Simon Reeves on his travels on T.V this am and it showed these fishermen line catching them dragging them ashore and cutting their fins off whilst alive and yes it is barbaric.

I'm not a vegetarian and do eat some meat and love fish so not a holier than thou person by any means but this sickened me.crying

Abhorrent.

I recall being in Indonesia many years ago for work purposes and our hosts took us to dinner at a popular restaurant.

It was a banquet with varied dishes constantly arriving from the kitchen and I politely tasted all including having a slurp of a globulous gelatinous soup which turned out to be shark fin blues

I hated myself immediately blues

The same way you would if your arms were cut off and you were thrown into deep water .Bleed to death , drown or get eaten by other sharks.

That's the whole point of the thread Gal, man's inhumanity to our wildlife.
