Hi all, Earthy UK celebrity chef, Gordon Ramsay, has been featured in a program entitled "Shark Bait" which went to air in the UK last Sunday night. Aiming to "expose" the practice of shark finning, he does, I think succeed in raising the issue with people who had never considered the problem before. Channel 4 viewers on a Sunday night is a different demographic from the normal watchers of programs like this. He also persuades a group of restaurant owners to stop serving shark fin soup in London-by showing his footage. Due to copyright, I can't embed the film, although it is available on YouTube. This is certainly the case in the UK. If anyone can find a version of it that is embeddable, please add it below! Adam
Hi, I want to share with you guys a link of my flickr account, here you will find a set of pictures of shark finning in the city of Manta in Ecuador. The situation there is a really mess, the fishermen are finning around of 2000 sharks daily and the authorities say nothing because they see that finning as the product of an incidental fishing. The fishing of sharks for finning purposes are prohibited by law, just the incidental fishing is allowed.........but whom is so stupid to think that 2000 sharks daily is the product of an incidental fishing?......obviously the authorities that are corrupted by money. I begun a chain of post in my facebook account with some successful responses, some friends are sharing the album with other friends in differents countries, here, a local newspaper will use my pictures in a news article, the dark side is that I have received some threats and messages telling me to stop publishing more pictures, they are also trying to involve me with politicians against me. I´m not afraid of this, I will keep posting and doing all the necessary to stop this slaughter. http://www.flickr.com/photos/jcnavarrog/sets/72157631575166493/ Thanks for your support, and sorry for my english.
