Watch the footage and tell me it's not disgusting, all to accomodate a growing Chinese middle class. Furthermore, I personally do not think it's our place to determine which species is more valuable or important than the next. Sorry, I'm a misanthrope, and in my worldview a shark is as equally as important as a human. I stand by my statement, and anybody who can dish out such unwarranted cruelty and disrespect to another living being should be treated with reciprocity, in my opinion. That mentality is the reason other apex predators such as wolves, mountain lions, etc., occupy a fraction of their pre-Columbian distibution ranges. Same goes modern whaling vessels, I'd love to see the crews walk the plank...and for the record I'm not a vegetarian, I'm all about ETHICAL harvesting.
