My soul is full of longing for the sea
Why do we love the sea? It is because it has some potent power to make us think things we like to think.”

Shark fin soup - an ancient and prized chinese dish where they take aboard sharks and brutally hack off their dorsal and pectoral fins while they are still alive and throw them back into the ocean for them to either drown or get eaten by other predatory fish. They estimate that about 100 million sharks are killed each year by humans. Sometimes the sharks are not the targets but overall commercail fishing is the main reason why they are caught. And for what? To make a soup that has no nutritional value and is actually harming humans because of the high levels of poisonous metal found in shark fins. I cant stress how dumb humanity is that would harm them as well as another living creature for something that doesnt even taste good but is a ‘delicacy’

    If I may be so pragmatic, it does seem like a bit of a waste of shark if you kill it, cut off the fin and dump the rest...
