Shark Fin Soup

Chinese cuisine has more options for ingredients than any other. Complaining about the loss of one dish — shark fin soup, an endangered species harvested in a deliberately sadistic way is pathetic. Shame on those who refuse to make even the tiniest sacrifice. Their selfishness is shameful. The motive, conspicuous consumption, and bragging about one’s wealth is revolting.

CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) radio in Victoria aired a woman who claimed the practice of cutting fins off living sharks was a myth. Captain Paul Watson of the Sea Shepherd Society is on the lam for protesting this very practice. I have seen all kinds of video of fishermen cutting the fins of sharks and releasing the shark alive. If you Google shark fin images, you can see for yourself.
