This looks like another prohibition issue - Should sharks fins be banned on the market?
Problem: Many sharks are being caught and having their fins cut off, then throwing the body of the shark back in the ocean to twitch around until
Should fishing boats be banned?
Should knives be banned? They are cutting the fins off from the shark.
Or should just the shark fins be banned, which creates a black market?
How about making a law that prohibits shark fin soup from being sold?
Maybe a law should be made that makes a public execution of any leaders of the shark fin trade.
Or perhaps... The public changes their attitude and stops wanting to buy sharks fins. The key problem is that there is a market demand for sharks
fins. What could be done to change the attitude of an entire country (China, not HK alone) to not eat sharks fins?
When people stop buying sharks fins (creating market demand), then it makes no sense for fishermen to keep harvesting the fins.
My 2 cents, with no clear easy answer to this issue =b
edit on 3-1-2013 by Philippines because: added the sharks fins banned on the market
