Inspectors intercept 1400 LBs of shark fins

Recommended Posts

Inspectors with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced on Monday they had seized roughly 1,400 pounds of shark fins hidden in boxes in Florida last month.

The agency said the shipment of severed fins arrived on Jan. 24 at Miami Port of Entry in roughly 18 boxes. They were believed to have come from South America and likely bound for Asia.

Officials estimated the total value of the fins to be worth between $700,000 and $1 million. They waited until Monday to share the news outside of law enforcement.

 

Almost makes me root for the Coronavirus in China.

You are not the only one. If they are wanting to get fins, they should just use the whole animal and limit the amount of sharks they hunt. This excessive and inhumane process makes me sick. So many sharks are left on the bottom of the ocean because they can't swim without their fin. It is so disrespectful to nature and to our ecosystem. If I was president of United States, if I found anyone hunting sharks in my waters, I would have them arrested and have the book thrown at them. This type of trade needs to be hammered down hard if any respect for the human race is regained.
