It's extra evil!
Now just imagine if you could get a frickin' laser or two onto one of those!
A Florida fisherman found an unpleasant-looking surprise in the belly of a bull shark he had just caught; a two-headed fetus ready to be born. Two-headed Bull Shark Double the bite (credit: Journal of Fish Biology) The specimen, described in the latest Journal of Fish Biology, has two heads side-by-side, each with its own …
No, but Crystal River Unit 3 is on the Gulf, in the Redneck Riviera, and their safety record is about as abysmal. That plant is going to be decommissioned though, and hasn't produced any energy since 2009. The containment building cracked while it was being refueled and uprated.

"According to the International Shark Attack File, there were 80 instances of unprovoked shark attack against humans in 2012, with seven deaths.
By contrast, around 100 million sharks were killed last year, a fair number of which had their fins cut off for soup before being thrown back into the sea to sink and drown. ®"
So the 80 against humans isn't really that unprovoked?
Very true it's all in the marketing, just like the angry anti veggie crowd who have no issues eating cheese on toast.
Shark n bake it awesome, if we move towards ensuring shark fishers sell their entire catch it could help with overfishing of other stocks. Plus you could easily use it in stuff like fish fingers \ fish pies \ fish burgers without much resistance.
A major reason I hate celeb chefs is they take a cheap food (rhubarb, cod cheeks, pollock etc) and feature it and all of a sudden it costs a sodding fortune to make a rhubarb crumble. England does focus too much on cod. I like it, but theres a lot of very tasty fishies out there and if we were more tolerant of other fish we could eat a lot better for a lot less.

That, honestly, is a phenomenon i've not come across before - great mental image though..

..then leave the cod cheeks and pollock out of your rhubarb crumble mate - save yourself a fortune.
haha thank for the advice :-) I'm not actually vegetarian but I do eat less meat these days, mostly due to quality concerns rather than bunny cuddling concerns. I have noticed that some folks do decide they aren't going to eat something if it's labelled as veggie but will quite happily eat something like an egg mcmuffin or a cheese omlette etc. It's just branding.
I think comparing shark meat to horse meat is spot on. Both are\can be very high quality products (I guess like anything they can also be poor quality) but aren't recognised due to social prejudices. If you ever get chance, try shark, it's good food! I do understand it's financially better to stuff a boat with shark fin rather than shark meat, but I also think it's freaking crazy we throw away potentially great quality meat when we have junk at home and there are people starving elsewhere in the world. As I said, one Jamie Oliver recipe and shark would be in every supermarket by the end of the week. If you create a market maybe it will be financially viable to land sharks, they'd fill their boats quicker.

I'd love to !... not had the chance yet, although had the odd bit from some of its relatives. We also used to get fabulous conger here until they shut the fish market down, now it's like hens teeth, i'd like to see that in the super-markets as well.. gorgeous.
Because the fins are worth a small fortune and the rest isn't. Weight for weight they can get get way way more (that's an actual amount by the way) so why keep the rest? They have just cut the fins off, they don't really care about the thing, only the money they can make.
Either has to be better than 69p lasagne or the random fish from Vietnam or China we seem to get these days :-) I think we are wayyyy to picky about what species we eat and not picky enough about the quality of what we do eat. Squirty cheese can be stuffed full of chemicals but god forbid your carrot is too long or the wrong shape, then it's only good for horse food. iirc some of the supermarkets did sell 'novelty' veg that 'wasn't for consumption' at halloween one year, all perfectly decent stuff, just the wrong shape \ size. Mad.
It doesn't matter whether they eat the rest of the damn shark or not. Sharks have an extremely low reproductive cycle when compared to other fish species, so it's little wonder that a large number of sharks are critically endangered. Shark fishing simply isn't sustainable, regardless of how much of the shark is eaten.
A lot of the sharks being finned are notionally protected species, so selling parts is illegal and fins are a lot easier to hide than complete bodies of evidence.
Shark might taste nice (althought you're probably thinking of dogfish), but it goes off _very_ quickly and if you make a mistake whilst gutting and pierce the ammonia sac, not only is the carcass you're processing ruined, so is pretty much anything else - including the processing room until it's thoroughly hosed down.
Dogfish are not protected and there's no apparent shortage of them.
From what I understand it doesn't bring a high enough price to fill your hold with compared with other things, it doesn't taste as good as snapper etc so they fetch a far higher price.
Supermarkets in the UK used to sell shark, pressure from the Shark trust caused them to stop selling it a few years back.
I've watched it. Never before in movie history have so many pairs of people been lined up to be killed.
I have an odd love of poor syfy movies so you may have seen any of the following:-
Malibu Shark Attack
Mega Shark Versus Giant Octopus
Mega Shark Versus Crocosaurus
Dinocroc vs. Supergator
When they caught the Bull Shark, clearly they should have spotted it was pregnant and released it back? Granted they released its unborn shark babies but they should have let the shark alone. Sharks have a hard enough time as it.
This mutant shark would have probably died shortly after birth anyway.
