    Default More shark controversy

    Hong Kong shark fin traders criticise US report

    Wed, Dec 02, 2009
    AFP


    HONG KONG (AFP) - Hong Kong shark fin merchants on Wednesday reacted angrily to a US study that said meat from endangered species was being sold in the city's markets to make a popular soup.


    Source: http://news.asiaone.com/News/Latest%...02-183600.html
    Nevermind that really. But just reading what those Hong Kong chums said are making me laugh.

    In the new study for the journal Endangered Species Research, US scientists said they had used DNA testing to trace the geographic origin of shark fins on sale in Hong Kong. They found 21 percent of the fins came from endangered scalloped hammerhead shark stocks in the western Atlantic.

    But the Hong Kong Shark Fin Trade Merchant's Association said its members had not done anything illegal.

    "We are not doing anything against the law. The sale of endangered scalloped hammerhead shark fins has not been made illegal here."
    Some new friends for TC.


    Mak Ching-po, chairman of the Hong Kong Dried Seafood and Grocery Merchants Association, also criticised the study.

    "Shark populations will grow exponentially if we don't keep fishing them," Mak told Hong Kong daily The Standard.

    "As a result, humans will be in short supply of smaller fish such as garoupa, as sharks will eat them."
    Will someone please educate them?

    It would be big shame to Hong Kong, China, and the asian race if they are bowing to the west like a slave by accepting cultural genocide. If Hong Kong or China ask the west to stop consuming beef, would they bow to the demand? I guess not. The more they are complaining is the more shark fin soup I am willing to consume even at the higher price. I will stop consuming shark fin soup when the west stop consuming beef.

    Blimey! That, should be a job for the Indians.

    *takes a deep breath* They should ban Shark fin soup and make a law in Canada - "Consumption of Sharkfin is ILLEGAL.". I'm sure by then you'll bow to that, yes/no? Or, you'll be deem a criminal who go against a law.

    I can handle your posts when they're just being ultra-conservative.
    But when you just ramble nonsense like this, I don't even want to bother dissecting each nonsensical thing in this post.

    I'll just respond with this *facepalm* ... again.

    man, people have to stop saying conservative when they mean bat sh*t crazy. -_- we actual conservatives do not want to be associated!

    regarding the topic, i do think there should be some control when it comes to endangered species. if they're not endangered, then free reign!

    If you're a proponent of killing sharks until there are no more just because it is part of your "culture," then what about tiger bones? do you advocate eliminating all tigers then? or what if there's some culture that bathes in children's blood or something? or how about cannibals?

    Classy.

    You can insult me all you want. I am fair game. But donít insult my mom. I donít diss your family even though you post idiotic things all the time, Iíd appreciate it if you leave mine out of it.
    What are you fighting for? Just mix them into pissing beef balls, stupid.

    There are different level of conservatism. Most people I know who are conservative are very cool. You probably are one of them too .
    TC, I suppose, is a mix of both extreme conservatism (there is the extreme liberalism on the other end which is equally annoying) and just plain ignorance. A lot of his values are in line with what conservatives believe in, just that he takes them a few steps further and mixes it with some dashes of narrow-mindedness and ignorance. I guess I should have used that instead as just "conservative."

    That's just uncalled for.
    I'm annoyed at his posts, but I'm not interested in physically harming him (even metaphorically).

    Also uncalled for. Maybe even worse than the one above. It's fine if you want to get into an e-fight with jiang bao, but insulting someone's family is just out of line.
    Though that post made me feel that you're probably a troll.

    Reverend Rongku prepared himself.

    Suddenly, he toss his hands and screamed: "I am not human! I am an animal!"

    The crowd startled at such a bizarre beginning to the story.

    JB here. Sorry if I offended anyone. My reply to wener was meant to be tongue in cheek. What I meant was that a face palm wouldn't be very effective - hence "in fairness to TC," in other words, he is probably strong enough to not be bothered by a face palm - so to get rid of him a knee to the groin would work better.

    Anyhoo. Take care y'all.

    Hong Kongers should stop eating sharks and eat more fvcking beef so they don't all look like skinny little girls.

    Put all your hopes on Candy.

    Anyhow I hope someone can teach those people what it means by 'keeping moderate'. Their reasoning is just hunting a key species to death to protect another species, which is ironically self-defeating.
