I don't really have much comment one way or the other on the shark fin issue...honestly, I was so moved by the story of Sakari, I haven't really taken on the thread at hand in a serious fashion...thanks for posting that link to your wolf.

Disturbing too that the sharks are alive during and after the fins being cut off...
