  • Yes, the shark fin trade is inhumane.

    The shark fin trade should be banned because its practices are inhumane. Shark fins are often harvested from live sharks who are then released into the oceans. This leaves them unable to swim adequately, unable to catch pray or defend themselves from predators. The shark fin harvesting leaves live sharks, effectively, for dead.

    This is practice harms the sharks more than is needed and adds to the break down in oceanic ecosystems due to the loss of top level predators. The banning of this practice would not just be humane and the right thing to do but it is a moral obligation humanity has to the oceans and their health.

  • its cruel to them

    He shark fin trade, and other trades that use creatures, should be banned because they threaten the species, and thereby threaten the equilibrium of our environment. It is pure greed to take the life of a creature in order to trade a small part of that creature, and such a thing should be outlawed for all species.

  • No, however it should be regulated.

    While it should be illegal to hunt the animals in the wild (several species are moving towards the endangered list, after all) there should be no crime against farming them and raising them specifically for food or what have you. We do it with birds, fish, livestock and any manner of other creatures, I see no reason not to allow shark farming.
