Endangered shark found. Eaten.


Boing Boing Endangered shark found. Eaten. Fisherman in the Philippines snared an extremely rare megamouth shark, one of only 40 or so known to be left in the world. Then they ate it. From the Associated Press: The 1,100-pound, 13-foot megamouth died while struggling in the fishermen’s net on March 30 off Burias island in the central Philippines. It was taken to nearby Donsol in Sorsogon province, where it was butchered and eaten, said Gregg Yan, spokesman for WWF-Philippines. Yan said a WWF Donsol Project Manager Elson Aca took pictures of the megamouth and tried to dissuade the fishermen from eating it. Shark meat is the main ingredient in a local delicacy.
