Everyone who is interested in diving should read the book from R. Clover "The End of the Line".
It tells so much more about fisherman.

Wonder how many Australians would knowingly consume shark meat? (heard/ seen reports that shark meat is the fish in the fish & chips in many countries)

In France, shark meat is sold as "Saumonette". Unless you know it is shark, it sounds like a kind of Salmon Fish from the sea.
Disgusting.

I just hate their excuse:

But Queensland shark fishermen aren't impressed, saying they are already heavily regulated and that many Australian families eat shark meat because it's affordable.


Oh, hey, Rhino horn powder exports from Africa bring a lot of money to the economy. Rhino meat is really cheap because nobody wants it. Let's "not regulate Rhino hunting because many African families eat Rhino meat because it's affordable." What logic...
