When you package it up nicely, with a pretty red bow, maybe add some tasty parmesan breadcrumbs, or tell yourself eating these animals -hammerhead shark fins, seahorses, and totoaba swim bladders - are going to make you extra potent or virile, does it make it okay? I first saw de-finned and decapitated hammerheads in Baja, CA (they usually just take the fins like I show here, the rest is dumped while still alive). Then, when in China, I saw dried shark fins with big red bows on them in a fancy restaurant, and the seahorses and other animals on sticks for sale in a street market. The totoaba swim bladder is considered more valuable than cocaine right now, and a Mexican cartel is now involved in this illegal trade. All due to male fragility. Want it to stop? We can all do our part by educating ourselves, refusing to consume, and sharing this with others. A good place to look is seafoodwatch.org, that promotes "local, sustainable seafood caught by responsible fishermen and women.”
