Shark fin soup is tasteless. Its only value is as a status symbol costing a bowl. Chinese fishermen haul endangered sharks from the ocean and hack their fins off and toss them back into the ocean where the sharks die slowly.

|Seal Hunt||The Canadian commercial seal hunt is a barbaric bloodlust ritual where baby seals are beaten to death with spiked clubs and also skinned alive, all for no economic benefit. Its motive is simple sadism. 2013-04-30|
|Cetacean Intelligence||Cetaceans (Whales and dolphins) are intelligent. I give mostly personal experiences as evidence.

|Dolphin Slaughter||The Japanese are about to slaughter 17,000 dolphins. We stopped the Makah’s lunacy. Surely we can also wake up the Japanese to the stupidity and cruelty of what they are doing. 2013-04-20|
