Eating shark fin soup is one of the distinguishing habits of sick backward Chinese culture.
Traditional Chinese culture dating back to the Ming Dynasty (1368 -1644) considered shark fin one of the eight treasured foods from the sea and since then have been traditionally served at dinner parties to express the host’s respect for his guests, particularly for Chinese weddings.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM ) crap clams that shark fin helps rejuvenation, appetite enhancement, nourishing to blood, beneficial to vital energy, kidneys, lungs and bones.
But vitamin tablets supplementing a poor diet would achieve the same outcome, so the use of shark fin is purely cultural, backward and sick.
The Australian Government supports sick foreign backward cultures like the Chinese.
Kam Fook Shark Fin Restaurant in Sydney located at Location: L6, Shop 600, Westfield Shopping Town Chatswood, North Shore is pure Chinese TCM backward culture and must be banned forthwith!
It serves Shark Fin soup, meaning that it endorses and encourages the slaughter of sharks for their fins. Many sharks are amputated and thrown back alive into the sea to die of an excruciatingly slow death. The practice is barbaric!
It promotes the restaurant as famous "for menu items include dishes like shark fin with coriander or deep fried salt and pepper tofu."
It's restaurants are at:
1. 500 Oxford St, Bondi Junction
2. 1 Anderson St, Chatswood
3. 9 Hay St, Haymarket
In May 2010, the United States introduced a ban on Shark Fin products in Hawaii after becoming the first state in the nation to ban the possession of shark fins. The state is attempting to help prevent the overfishing and extinction of sharks around the world.
Governor Linda Lingle signed a bill prohibiting the possession, sale or distribution of shark fins. The bill passed the state House and Senate with broad support earlier this year.
The legislation generated some grumbling in Hawaii's sizable Chinese community - more than 13 per cent of the state population is Chinese or part Chinese. Many consider shark fin a delicacy and important part of affluent Chinese culture.
Australia's condoning of backward cultures like TCM makes Australia backward.
Chinese getting married in Australia who celebrate with shark fin soup should be extradited on the moral basis of animal cruelty and abuse, or else fed to the sharks.
