Seems if you have $18,000 you can buy your own whale shark.

They claim the shark was already dead. I do hope it's true and the people buying the fins get a bad case of poisoning (non lethal of course). Maybe it'll get some negative fin press. However, fins that big will be sold dry to restos who use it for decoration.

I really hope it was dead when they found it :/ hopefully seeing such a stunning animal degraded like that will help continue to give shark finning a bad name.
