Shark fin soup may be morally objectionable as they are usually cut from the 
live shark after which the incapacitated shark is tossed overboard to drown 
or be eaten.  To the fishermen who catch the sharks, this is likely a matter 
of efficiency and more concern about their comfort than that of the shark.

*Live* turtles? What, uhm, possible culinary edge does vivisection give to a
dish containing live turtles? I don't feel at all squeamish about the
shark's fin, although I'd probably avoid it because of mercury
--Maire's admittedly western mind is boggling at that one....
