(AP) - With the growth of Asia's economies in the past decade, the demand for shark fin soup, which can fetch more than $100 a bowl, has gone up. "People want to show their wealth a little more, and one way is to have the soup at your party," said Paul Ortiz, a senior enforcement attorney for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The soup's popularity in Asia has also led to a rise in unappetizing practices by fishermen eager to cash in. <a href="http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&cid=535&ncid=535&e=15&u=/ap/20030519/ap_on_re_as/shark_finning" target="_blank">More</a> ...

I saw video of fishermen just cutting of the fins of live sharks and tossing the sharks back in the ocean. They will die a slow death unable to swim and will either suffocate due to not enough oxygen or bleed to death.<br><br><br><br>
And poeple call sharks violent creatures. They eat to live and kill quickly.<br><br><br><br>
It's a disgusting thing to do. Hard to believe someone could do these actions
