Did you know China has some of the tightest envriomental protection regulations in the world? /yao

I don't know about you guys but shark fin soup is fucking amazing.

Nonetheless this is a big step in the right direction. A whole shark killed just for the fin? . Even if the ban does take three years to implement , it will still have SOME positive effect.

i actually like sharks fin soup but i dont like it enough to pay for it or have sharks slaughtered for just their fins.
i do find the texture to be very unique, but yeah the flavor is in the broth.

But is it the shark fin that makes it amazing, or all the other ingredients?

Even shark fin 'connoisseurs' realize that the fin itself adds nothing more than cost. It's the broth that is 'amazing', the fins are just there to make people feel special.

Really, that is literally all it's good for. You could say texture, but that can be replicated easily with many collagen based ingredients. But it wouldn't be expensive enough to use beef tendon or something like that.

yes they should ban it, so that only a few select can get it again.

that was the fine balance.


lol, in our capitalist world, that just means raising the price so that most people cannot afford it, and a penalty so that only the wealthy can get away with it. the only way to do that is to make it illegal.

that's what it will become.

Seen a lot of information and a couple documentaries about shark fin soup, and while I didn't like the idea before, what I saw just pissed me the fuck off.

That's very anthropocentric, its unlikely humans and sharks experience pain through the same mental processes. Generally speaking though, I like your train of thought.

On an unrelated note, the Western hypocrisy surrounding shark fin soup is not only hugely significant but rarely discussed or even mentioned.

The solution to shark fin is simple. Either make it sustainable or find a way to grow shark fin in a lab. If someone could figure that out, he/she would be a multi-billionaire. Problem solved.

I had it when I was super young. It's good, but it doesn't really justify the price tag.

that was my idea, as soon as i heard this shit, i was like, we better start cloning sharks or growing fins in petri dishes or some shit.

i'm with you man, i love shark fin soup.

the superior kind. the thick soupy ones with like half a solid fin in it.
the fin is "good". although, if you can replicate the same texture and "taste" with something else i'm fine with that too...

i'm not talking about the low quality soup, where it comes in a normal bowl and the fin is already all mixed up with a buncha other ingredients they throw in there. that's not shark fin soup man. that's just left overs LOL.

people that really want it will get it anyway. it's like drugs.

they should ban it, then only the people that truly want it, will get it.

shark fin soups gotta have the element of exclusivity. make it illegal, make it have fines/punishment, make it super expensive. eating it will have 100x more thrill.
