Fact of the Day: Shark Fins

Sharks are often hunted by humans for their fins. They fins are cut off and the shark is tossed back into the ocean. Most of the time, the shark is still alive, but unable to swim. It will run out of oxygen or be eaten by another animal before its time is up.

Shark fin soup is an Asian EXPENSIVE - make that VERY - delicacy.
I tried it in Japan with Japanese hosts and didn't like it, they were
horrified!

A collection of weird responses. Some of the above Yank brigade probably go hunting with AK machine guns - God help the coyote, deer or turkey.
Maybe the hunters like eating buck-shot and lead????

Such cruelty in pursuit of a culinary delicacy. The production of delicacies for human consumption is riddled with stories of cruelty.
