Shark fin soup is a tasteless gelatinous dish popular in Asian countries and parts of the United States. It is taken for male virility, even though there is absolutely no evidence it has any effect at all. For this millions of sharks meet a grizzly fate every year. They die slowly and painfully as only their fins are removed and the, still living, bodies dumped back into the ocean. Anyone that eats this soup is not a friend of the health of our oceans.
