One of our students has created podcast about the images and feelings that came from reading a wonderful poem from William Wordsworth called “I Wondered Lonely as A Cloud”.
It’s a good idea that shark fin soup should be banned. When fishers cut the shark they use a hot knife to cut the shark fin and then they throw the shark’s body back in the Ocean. More Sharks are being killed each year than are being born. About 26 to 73 Million sharks are killed annually. The shark’s body can be used to make many products and turned into wallets and belts but they don’t use them often because they make so much money on the fin. One bowl of shark fin cost $100 per bowl. Shark finning has been growing in Hong Kong, china, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand. Canada has passed a law prohibiting the sale of shark fin products in 2012. People say that plenty of sharks species are not endangered and people should be allowed to harvest these animal, but one-third of all shark species is now threatened with extinction. People believed that if you eat the shark fin it gives you health, prosperity and good fortune, but what has many people are really upset is the illegal practice of shark finning. Fishermen just take the fin because the product is so small and worth a lot of money. If shark become extinct it would affect the healthy balance of the ocean ecosystem. It’s a good idea that shark fin soup should be banned.
Shark fin soup should be banned. Today mainly to meet the demand, about 26 to 73 million sharks are getting killed and each year the number would increase. It would increase because more people can afford it. More sharks are being killed then they are being born. Now about one third of all shark species is now threatened with extinction. This would affect the ocean ecosystem .Shark finning involves a hot knife using it to slice the shark fins off when the shark is alive. Then when they are done finning they throw it back into the water and the shark either bleed to death or suffocate. This is very cruel. Shark oil is used in makeup and cosmetics. Shark cartilage and shark liver oil end up in dietary supplements. Shark skin leather is turned into wallets and leather belts. They don’t use the rest of the shark to make these products often because it’s not worth a lot of money to them. Shark finning is illegal but fishermen still do it because they make lots of money. These are the reasons why shark fin soup should be baned.
