Remove Shark Fin Soup from Dynasty Restaurant, Trump Taj Majal Atlantic City, NJ

Each year, an estimated 100 million sharks are killed brutally because of the ongoing demand for shark-fin soup and other shark fin dishes. Aside from containing high levels of poisonous mercury, shark fin is also tasteless.

The horrific process of shark finning involves fishermen capturing live sharks, fin them, and dump the finless animal back into the water still alive. The fins are removed with a hot metal blade. The resulting immobile shark soon dies a slow and agonizing death from suffocation.

Sharks are magnificent creatures that have been around for millions of years. They play very important roles in our oceans. As apex predators, they regulate the quantity and health of other species of fish and invertebrates. Sharks quite often prey on sick, diseased or old animals. This prevents the disease or sickness from spreading and creates habitat space for other animals.

      unlike in those horror movies sharks are not blood thirst beasts that will kill anything in sight.It is worng to kill any of these poor mistaken creatures when they have not done anything but swim, remember that we share the earth with other creatures as well and that the waters are their home.

      Lets now get it started in USA, everywhere else is out of control. High levels of mercury can cause health problems such as ringing in your ears(tiinitis).

      This is important to me because sharks have their fins cut off while they are alive, their bodies thrown back into the water, where they slowly suffer, suffocate, and die.
