This has got to be the best video I’ve seen that speaks out AGAINST shark fining. It’s disgusting and wasteful. People eat shark fin soup because it’s a "status" symbol. This culture needs to change! I applaud Gordon Ramsay for making this video. Please share this with all your friends (divers OR non-divers). Everyone needs to see this (there is a bit of bad language - but it doesn’t matter - watch it!).

Wow, Babe! That’s crazy and it makes me sick and sad. I’m going to pass it along wherever I can.

Great video and good to see someone with some status standing up for it. This is appauling nad unfortunatley there are many more, such as the whale hunts that continue around the world. I watch Whale Wars and it enrages me, but it is good that there are people willing to bring this abuse of the oceans to the public and attempt to stop it.

I had to turn it off. I couldn’t watch anymore. I am physically ill... Those poor creatures. I will share this so other know how horrible this actually is!

I knew the video would be hard to watch, but OMG... it just makes me sick to see how many sharks were killed to account for the fins in just this one video! To think of how many are killed every day, day after day, week after week... I hope he can make a difference! Let’s hope it catches on!!

Greg! You should try to start a TV show knock off of Whale Wars. Shark Wars!!! Thanks for the posts!

It is tragic what people are doing to the Shark population and I understand the Asian point of view. It would be hard for me to stop eating Lobster. However to hunt a species with such cruelty and possibly to extension is insane. I connected with Project AWARE over 3 years ago to support the end of Finning. I invite all divers to do the same. Let’s put an end to this brutality.

I will pass this on. This is insane. We can’t keep doing this to our world and be human. This makes us less then human.
