there is a simple answer to asian people. EAT SOMETHING ELSE!! there are cows, pigs, sheep, chickens all can be easily farm grown and raised. you are killing one of the most amazing, powerful and essential species on the face of the planet. if the stupid asians keep this up they will destroy the whole eco system of the ocean so eat goddam cow!!

The unfortunate thing is that it is darn near impossible to enforce a quota on fishing or hunting in general. So we are forced to choose between two options: either ban finning entirely and lose a bit of traditional culture, or preserve the culture and devastate the environment... The first choice is much better but it in itself is not complete righteousness. I don't think we should blame the Chinese people as critically as the people in the humongous and very corrupt finning industry.

If you're not vegan, don't say anything about "Don't eat shark fins!", because I'm sure eating beef is horrific to certain cultures, especially at the rate Americans eat beef.

I do agree that the sharks are being over-fished, but there are other ways to saving the shark population besides banning shark fin soup, like setting size and weight limitations.

And please stop using racial slurs (:

I disagree, we can blame Asia for all of this specifically everyone who has/does drink shark fin soup. First of all the shark fin does absolutely nothing to make the soup taste better they just think it "heals" them...dumbest thing I have ever heard. Get out of your ancient stupid ways the world doesn't work like that anymore. They do this with everything...tuna, sharks, whales the list goes on and on. Without them willing to pay so much for these foods there would be no market at all.

I don't know about anyone else but these videos are very disturbing to me...the problem with shark finning is that the people doing it don't have any other way of making money we nee to spend money to educate them on these issues rather then spending money on stupid issues like war and such...we also need to tell those stupid asians(sorryfor the racism)to stop being so stupid and realize that they areruining oceanfirst with Tuna and now with Sharks when are theygoing to stop?it needs to end now

It's freaking wasteful. Why can't you eat the meat too. They used to sell shark meat at a fast food restaurant called "Burger Chef" where I grew up. They had the best fish filet sandwich's and it was all shark meat.

The thing is, when you go fishing for anything, it has to be a certain size to keep it- even crabs. But apparently you can wipe out baby sharks, when they only have a baby a year, and that's ok.

Can't just blame the Chinese here. Heard of Chondroiton? We are at fault too.

And for those pups it takes about 25-30 years to mature?

@TheIxtlan can you please explain to me IN DETAIL how does it taste. B'cos as far as I know and remember, shark fins are TASTELESS! The sharks fin soup contains other ingredients such as crab meat etc.. shark's fins provide the TEXTURE for the soup as well as absorbing other flavours. Also, if consumed too much it can sterile a guy bcos of it's high mercury content. I wish you get your ears cut and thrown in the water like those poor sharks.

This is indeed terrible. Sharks without fins are nothing different from birds without wings and humans without limbs. Shark fins itself is tasteless, and much flavouring has to be added to make the shark fin soup delicious. Why bother to take away animals' lives only for a sign of status symbol? This can be stopped, by letting the globe know the consequence of consumption of shark fin-------sharks may become extinct, and they will.

I agree that some people eat shark fin soup is because it's considered a status symbol (in Asian countries). But there are consequences if sharks are critically endangered or extinct. The shark's fin is made of cartilage.

Bdk989 2 years ago

Very few shark attacks ever happen. It seems like a lot because the news ALWAYS reports it. Why? Because it's a very rare event. It's nearly always completely preventable too; most of the time it's due to the humans' mistakes, such as swimming when not enough others are around, or with a cut.

Or often in the case of surfers, the shark mistakes the silhouette of the surf board for a seal.

Besides, humans are overpopulated, sharks are fading away. Do the math. We could USE more predators!

Except that a population boom in sharks is bad news for the rest of aquatic life.

Besides, how many sharks are actually "fading away"? There are hundreds of species of sharks, and I can't think of any off the top of my head that are endangered. It's true that its pointless to fin a shark, but who the hell are we to call these people evil because of the way they like their soup?

I can' t believe how ignorant you are.

Sharks are an apex predator in the oceans, and as such they are essential for regulation and maintenance of biodiversity and balance in their marine ecosystems. If a top predator is removed, the system will be thrown out of balance and suffer devastating consequences. Sharks take 15 years to reach sexual maturity and really don't have any chance to recover from these brutal, disgusting massacre practices.

foxielocks 2 years ago

The sharks are hauled onto the boats, the fins are savagely hacked off with a machete, and the shark is then kicked back into the ocean, still alive.

>110 species are on the International Red List and are threatened with extinction.

In the past 20 years, some species have declined by as much as 90%.

100 million sharks killed every year is 32867 every day, 13698 every hour, 4 every second. Enjoy your soup.

foxielocks 2 years ago

the population would only boom to get back to its original state, and then mother nature will find a way of working things out to get the population back to normal.

what we do to lobster's is no where near as bad as this. we actually utilize all the food in the lobster, and for sharks all they do is hack off its fins to add a bit of texture to their soup. and we kill lobster's alot more humanely than we do sharks, we dont chop off the lobsters claws and throw its half alive body into the water.

Shark finning is a multi billion dollar industry. 15,000 sharks die every hour and a half. soon they will be extinct and all ocean life will die without the balance of sharks. Shark finning should never be allowed, they cut the fins off and discard the shark while it is still alive. The fins add no flavor just texture in in a bowl of shark fin soup. This is inhumane and should never be allowed. I suggest watching the movie "Shark waters" and everyone will feel sorry for sharks its a guarantee.

honestly, I think it's difficult to decide whether this is considered "unethical" or not. Of course obviously it may seem to be, but it is a form of tradition and it does play a role economically. If you think this is bad, well slaughter houses for chickens aren't any better. I think it is more, the fact that they are finned extensively and that they are released without their fins that is the problem. Im not saying it's right. But it isn't outright bad either, it just has major faults.

You cant compare chickens and sharks. Chickens are farmed to be killed. Sharks are taken from their natural habitat, while their killers give back nothing. Its the fact that they are not being repopulated that is the issue.

FruitCup56 3 years ago

When they're all dead, it won't take long before we die as well. Plankton produces massive quantities of oxygen, even more than the forests due to a larger surface. If the top predator (the shark) is extinct, the smaller species will overpopulate the ocean, causing the plankton to rarify and possibly disappear, which in result will stop the production of about 2/3rd of our oxygen.

The funny thing is, that shark fins are regarded as an aprodisiac, but the mercury in them can make you impotent and cause other damage.

Concerning the baby seals: Yes, it is tragic, but there are many other people to take care of them. You can get many people to be sorry for baby seals, because they look cute. Killing sharks is often justified by "we just kill them back". Which is complete bogus, by the way. Les people are bitten by sharks than by New York citizens.

unfortunately, humans have got pretty much the entire worlds oceans covered - sharks can't get away. Longline fishing covers hundreds of miles (per boat, of which there are about 1000 in operation) and every day 1.8 million baited hooks are set, which catch just about every large predatory fish (including millions of sharks)as well as endangered turtles and sea birds. Sharks just can't escape.

Shark fins are usually known as a symbol for wealth. What i find difficult to understand is, there is not taste in them, the only thing that makes the soup good is the beef or chicked sauce made with it. People only eat it simply because it is hard to find and it is expensive. Hence, the fact that it symbolizes wealth and properity.

Add youtube in front of this link to see what our beef industry does. Is equally as bad if not worst.

This is so one sided. Have you seen chicken abuse in KFC farms? You ever wonder how cows gets slaughtered for steak. All animal slaughtering should stop. I LOL at people who think this is exclusive to sharks.

I have lots of vegan friends who are active in protecting sharks. this is not really an issue of just animal cruelity but rather the extermination of an entire species. It is good sometimes to focuse on one issue at a time rather than tackle them all at once.

Our cattle industry kills at a frantic pace 1000x greater than the shark industry. We are cutting cow's horns and nuts off with no painkillers of any sort. Which is worse, cutting the fin off or the testicle?

And we are murdering cows on a scale far larger than any international shark industry. But everyone is being politically retarded since sharks are not part of our diet and point fingers at some other countries.

This video is shocking and sad! It send cold shivers up my spine! Sharks are one of my favorite animals! They deserve so much better than this kind of brutal treatment! What are we? Barbarians?

Unfortunately yes. Human history has shown we are not only barbaric and suicidal, but that we completely disregard others too. Despite the environmental impact it causes.

What a shame sharks are such amazing creatures. We owe them one.

Can't really fault the dirt poor people who are harvesting the fins, the blame rests with the selfish people who just can't live without their shark fin soup.

What a shame.

Agree. They actaully make no money on this and destroy there basis for future earnings. The traders and merchants make all the money.

Thank you for bringing attention to this cruel and wasteful practice that threatens the survival of sharks and the health of our oceans.

Excellent clip. I produced Shark Stewrads of the Reef and wish I had some of your footage when we were making it. If you want to collaborate on a 30 second spot to be shown at CITES to help ban shark finning, please write me.

Sharks are a very important part of the ecosystem, everybody should be aware of this fact and end this violence. They shouldn't keep having shark fin soup just because it has become a trend.
