Wasteful you should use as much of the animal as possible.
Not as profitable. A hold full of just fins is worth a heck of a lot more than a hold full of entire sharks so they go for fins only.

the Chinese elite have already been chowing down on shark fin soup for centuries.

they just cut the fins off the shark and dump the still living shark back into the water where it will die a slow and painful death

Which is another reason why CCP poacher militias posing as fishermen should be targets of Letters of Marque.

James Lileks has written a very humorous yet largely accurate article here for National Review.
Get a Grippe by James Lileks said:
Oh, I was warned. I knew what I was getting into. All the news stories said Covid was surging in New York, variant B-2.319aZed or something. But like a heartsick Tchaikovsky heedlessly drinking unboiled water at the height of a cholera epidemic, I cared not. I plunged into the depths of Manhattan, riding trains, visiting packed coffeehouses, close-talking in bars. And guess what happened?

Correct! I got Covid. But I’m super-ultra vaxxed — I actually have a small nozzle on my right arm where they top me off once a week — so I had just one night of fog and fever, which sounds like a Mel Tormé album title. But I know what some might say: If you think the vaccines were helpful, you’re probably the type who’s worried about monkeypox.

No. I am not. I do not fear the chimp-grippe. Nor do I believe that the CDC, Bill Gates, and Big Pharma are trying to gin up panic to keep us in a state of tremulous fear. Newspapers run the monkeypox stories because they employ neurotics alert for the next peril, and to coddle the portion of the audience that wants new reasons to wear masks. But some people online are convinced it’s a plot, pointing to an obscure study put out a few years ago. It studied the effect of a biologically altered monkeypox germ released by terrorists, and the date for the start of the pandemic . . . was May 2022.

There it is! Plandemic! You have to roll your eyes: The paper was just a study-group project, a what-if to help international organizations deal with such a situation. If it was really a blueprint, would they have published it and put it on the Internet? That would be like a James Bond villain taking out an hour on network TV to explain his subtle and ingenious plan to subvert the governments of the world and steal billions, undetected.

Which brings us to the World Economic Forum, a group of James Bond villains who have subtle and ingenious plans to spoil everything and manipulate entire populations. Except they put it all on YouTube, which means they want us to see it! Otherwise they’d put it on Hulu.

The WEF met in May, and the speakers poured forth the usual technocratic ingenuity: the benefits of lockdowns, digital passports embedded in your clothes, pills that tattle to the hospital if you don’t take them, the end of personal property, individual carbon trackers.

Their presentations sounded like this:

“Hello, I’m Dr. Guntram Oldenspyce, University of Cologne. We all remember the story about the tick whose bite turns people away from eating meat. We discussed last year the possibility of extracting the tick’s DNA and introducing it into the food supply, to reduce the carbon impact of meat consumption. At the time, of course, many of us thought this required some ethical considerations” — mild chuckles in the audience — “and that it would be better to simply substitute lab-grown meat for the real thing without telling anyone.

“Unfortunately, test programs in several Canadian cities indicate that 0.4 percent of the population is lethally allergic to lab-grown meat, and these deaths would have to be explained away somehow. That’s when we hit on the idea, pardon the pun, of using GPS-targeted artificial meteorites to take out the people we have identified in advance as allergic by using the DNA databases. This would be not only an excellent cover story, as I explained to the Washington Post’s science writer the other day, but an increase in deadly micro-meteor strikes can be ascribed to climate change as well. Ah, I see a hand in the audience. Yes?”

“Bradford Smythington, London Times. I’m unsure how we would cast climate change as the reason for extraterrestrial phenomena. Can you give us some advice?”

“Of course. As the atmosphere becomes more dense with CO2, the gravity of the earth increases, drawing down death from the heavens.”

“Bloody good. We’ll go with that.”

“There’s the added bonus of making people think they can’t go out unless they have a strong umbrella to protect them. We expect umbrella usage will become a conspicuous sign that one believes in the science, and there will be a societal rift between those who use umbrellas and those who do not. This discord can be used to keep the population divided into angry, contemptuous camps who are thus more easily manipulated. Ah, I see our time is up. If you’d like a recap of any of these plans, it will be running on C-SPAN tonight at seven. Thank you.”

The WEF mind-set assumes that these things are good and desirable because they solve the problem that ever vexes the technocratic class: the mulish refusal of the lumpenproles to adjust their behavior when requested. We asked you nicely, but what did you do? You ate a hamburger and got on a plane. Really, you’ve no one to blame but yourself. This pillow-soft scientific fascism appeals to the romantically unsuccessful urban journalist in search of a cause, and the next thing you know, the media write stories with headlines like “Smart Underwear Will Use Bluetooth to Report Your Carbon Output.”

At least it’s all out there in the open. It’s depressing how Covid showed that the institutions in which we placed our faith were hollow and confused, but at least we can take solace in knowing that our supervillain secret societies can’t keep their mouths shut.

Unless the WEF is just a distraction from the real shadow government. We laugh at Davos, and that’s just how the secret army of Amway wants it.

Well the thing is the Elite are in the process of dying out and their replacements....are dumber than they are. Especially if they had to go through what we call college these days.

Organisations like the WEF have no actual power. Their real purpose is to create a club where peer pressure can be exerted on members to conform.

Wonder why Trudeau is such an asshat? Thats because Trudeau is a former trustafarian slacker with little personal accomplishment and subpar intelligence. What is more is that he knows it. But Trudeau is in the cool kids club, and wants to impress them, so he takes the Current Thing and jacks it up to 1000% in order to look good in front of the cool kids.

In this post, you start by asserting the WEF has no power...

...And then go on to explain how they have power.

What?

As an organization, they are just the creatures of thier funders and backers. Schwab is a mouthpiece, nothing more.

This I'll agree with. There's very little functional difference between a hostile fleet stripping a sovereign nation's fisheries and a hostile army looting that nation's stockpiles or boarding and stealing their cargo ships.

The Chinese have so heavily fished their own waters that they are actually illegally sending fishing fleets into the waters of South American nations (mainly Chile) to steal their fish.

Yeah, the fisheries poaching the CCP gets up to is atrocious and frankly would have been an act of war in earlier ages.

But since Beijing owns DC and has enough firepower to push around anyone outside the G7, they'll keep getting away with it.

Sinking Chinese fishing boats that are violating national waters should be the response to this.

that's starting to happen.

China is for many reasons pretty much fucked when the collapse starts in earnest over there every one with a greviance will strike. There are going to be a whole lot of dead chinese fishermen in the next 10 years.

it wouldn't be hard to round up half a dozen former frogmen, train up some pissed off local fishermen and then engage in limpet mining ops against chinese fishing boats.

Yes, it would be quite easy to destroy such a ship or two but then there's every probability that China then proceeds to ruin your everything, and under current political realities the US is quite likely to stand by and do nothing while it happens given how hard it kowtows to China.

how?

funds can be concealed, identities can be concealed, and if the local government cooperates with the Chinese then they become traitors and a people's revolution occurs and they get removed.

they aren't all powerful.

in fact, those commie goobers are running out of money.

the axis which these operations revolve around is local support and cooperation.

and from what i can find/see, the locals hate the Chinese with their guts.

The Chinese navy doesn't have the reach to make it to the Americas start shit and then successfully sail back.

China is South America's biggest trading partner and has tremendous economic clout. Many South American nations that used to be food-independent aren't anymore, because they replaced their croplands with more profitable soybeans for export to China. All it would take is China declaring a punitive tariff on Soybeans or refusing trade entirely to cause massive economic damage and ruin those nations. And this, of course, is beyond the possibility of Chinabux simply backing a guerrilla group to coup any El Presidente that doesn't toe the line.
