I hope the excerpt from my book, IN DEEP made you wonder,
or even shocked you. Slaughter, you ask? Yep, slaughter!
What else would you call the
hacking off of fins (AKA "finning") from live sharks, to the tune of
70-100 million dead animals each year? It's done to feed the need
for shark fin soup, a tasteless staple of the affluent in Asia and
Asian communities around the world.
It's what's going on in our world and oceans today (and has been for
years)—the destruction of an entire species that has existed, even
before the dinosaurs, to appease the greed and culture of a people
stuck in the past.
IN DEEP was specifically written with a purpose in mind—to educate
and propel readers to care about these amazing and wrongly-maligned
animals, and see them as I do.
This book was inspired by my lifelong love and
fascination with sharks. And it was my utter disdain for those members of the public who are
indifferent to the brutal treatment of shark finning that has been
the fuel and passion for my writings.
