As many as 40 sharks are killed for a Chinese Wedding - apparently this is a tradition. I am shocked by this travesty and that it still goes on.
What is even more painful for me is that the people are surrounded by the bleeding carcasses and they are still smiling - don't even talk to me about shark fin soup!
See you on the water,

John could not describe his anger at this abuse of an animal for it's fin simply to show that the family is wealthy and respectful!!!
We have found a quote from a CBC news article:
More than 38 million sharks are killed each year just for their fins, according to Nickolas Dulvy, an expert in marine biodiversity and conservation at Simon Fraser University. “They just cannot reproduce fast enough to replace the numbers that are being killed routinely, daily by fisheries around the world,” said Dulvy.
