Animal Farm XI

Up to a 100 million sharks are killed every year to supply the Chinese thirst for shark fin soup, a dish that tastes of nothing and costs a fortune. The Chinese shark fin mafia is a criminal and global concern, fishing illegally as far away as central America, often in protected waters while paying off weak and corrupt local governments. Once the sharks, the top of the oceanic food chain, are gone, major collapse of some sea creatures is expected. Just another case of greedy fucking humans.

For more information on the illegal killing of sharks for cash, check out Rob Stewart’s excellent documentary Sharkwater.
