I always said, I'd eat my neighbor before I eat my dog if things came to that. I hold the value of humans far lower than the value of animals. I weep when I hear about animal abuse cases but didn't shed a tear when I heard of Sandy Hook.
No, but would like to try
No, totally against it
Shark fin is bland tasteless and rubbery, as with all delicacies they are usually rubbish. It wont stop until they extinct sharks from china sadly, and theres F all we can do about it.
OT: Youtube is buttfuck retarded, why is that gordon ramsay video not avaliable in my region?! The chefs scottish and channel 4 is a UK freeview channel...

Are people being really dense on purpose btw? Theres a massive bloody difference between farmed livestock and endangered wildlife, I mean, what even.

I keep forgetting you people value one kinda life different from another. Still dont quite understand that.
My issue is the waste, other parts of the shark are edible (from what I gather, anyway) but they toss them back into the ocean because a given boat's hull full of fins is worth more than a boat full of whole sharks.
It would be no different if a rancher just lopped off a cow's two front legs and left the rest of it to rot in the field.
Nothing wrong with eating fin soup, but there is something terribly wrong with such terrible waste.
Thing is though, sharks arent being farmed intensively like cows and chickens. They are a seriously important part of the oceans ecosystem, if they f up the population over there then it will affect more than just your precious soup.
We did something like this in the US.
See 19th century bison hunting...
The donkey: Probably not as popular... But popular in a certain region, at least.
Your link on the sashimi:
Now; I'm not going to watch that. I've got no problems watching a butchering, or even killing an animal, but that just makes me sick.
Now; as for cruelty versus brutality: True, hacking away at tuna is cruel because the animal's suffering clearly isn't viewed as important as the time it takes to catch them. Meaning that time has priority over reduced suffering. In that, it is cruel... But at least it's relatively quick.
If sealing is done improperly, by not verifying the animal's death before taking it apart (and by not using the animal, but only hunt them for the price of their hides), then that should be rectified, and proper hunting techniques should definitely be enforced.
Again; two wrongs do not make a right.

Because there isn't enough food to go round already. Why the living fuck do they have to eat anything that breathes.
I'll try anything once as long as it doesn't have mayonnaise, but it does kind of gross me out how they treat the poor sharks. I very rarely eat meat anyway, but if I were visiting a country where it was a cultural dish I'd give it a try just based on that.
"Bison were hunted almost to extinction in the 19th century and were reduced to a few hundred by the mid-1880s. They were hunted for their skins, with the rest of the animal left behind to decay on the ground. After the animals rotted, their bones were collected and shipped back east in large quantities."
I have tried it, but its really nothing special. I eat mako steaks all the time, to me its just a cheaper swordfish.steak.
We should cut off arms and legs off people doing this and throw them into the water and see how the feel.
Fucking messed up world.
9 out of 10 people agree that in a room full of 10 people one person will always disagree with the other 9.
We can be totally against it, but 2 billion people are for it. Seriously just need to face reality here that sharks in this part of the world will shortly be exstinct right along with whales also. Smith in the Matrix was right we are like locust destroying everything we touch.
