But please let me be a reminder to some of you, before you recapitulate your white superiority over other nations seemingly, to use one commentator’s word, “barbaric” cultures, check out the definition of “white hunter”

NO practices in the world are more “barbaric” then killing for pleasure. And of course who cares, because it’s a white man’s game.

about just as delicate as the unprecedented slaughter of elephants happening right now in Africa to feed the demand for ivory in asian countries, and about as delicate as the equally as horrific slaughter of rhino’s for their horns as an asian folk cure and erection builder.

shark fin soup is barbaric, wasteful, and shameful. and this article does nothing but glorify the industry. the MSC is no longer credible, and might as well just come right out and endorse overfishing and species extinction. canada as well lately has been bowing to asian currency with sales of energy resources to china — and now this. NO INTEGRITY WHATSOEVER.

Certryfying either krill or shark fisheries and condoning this criminal global traffic on shark fins is simply unacceptable by any angle as it perpetuates the shark fin soup cycle, “endorsing” the continuation of this wasteful, unnecessary practice which is the main reason why sharks are becoming endangered globally. I think that besides boycotting shark products it´s time to boycott MSC certification partners as well.
