If you went in a forest with a 30 mile line of hooks baited with salt, caught thousands of deer and dragged them along until they got to the hunter where the deer’s limbs were to be cut off while alive, and just leave the animal to die and bleed to death in the forest.
Would that last? certainly not, what is the difference between a deer and a shark? Is one’s life worth more than the other?

5% of his body being used, the rest tossed away. his fins cut off while still alive until he bleeds to death and suffocates while sinking to the ocean floor because he can no longer swim to move water through his gills. Many shark populations have declined up to 90%, they are apex predators and vital to the ocean ecosystem. Is a tasteless soup worth destroying an ecosystem?
