To Whom It Concerns,

I am writing today to request you immediately discontinue offering shark fin soup, a product of extreme animal suffering and environmental destruction. Please allow me this opportunity to elaborate. Shark fin commerce is an exceedingly vicious business; indeed, the unprincipled nature of such operations includes mutilating the shark for fins and then discarding the still-living shark to die in what can only be considered prolonged agony and fear. To deliberately inflict a non-human animal to such an incredibly savage practice is contrary to any established animal protection policies, and the majority of citizens, including voting constituents, has repeatedly voiced condemnation of such abuse.

Additionally, it has been factually established that shark meat is essentially toxic: shark products contain harmful levels of mercury, the content of which could prove potentially harmful to people, particularly women and children, who have been advised to discontinue consumption. Furthermore, claiming a desire to be a leader in environmental protection you have instead contradicted such assertions by sanctioning such an environmentally unsound business. To promote oneself as environmental while enabling shark harvesting is both unethical and fraudulent. Indeed, killing sharks has been proven ecologically detrimental, harming a extremely fragile and vitally important ecosystem, the consequences of which negatively affect all other marine and land life. Because these systems exist amongst each other in symbiotic relationships, no animal, human or non-human, is immune to such ramifications.

Humans have adopted an anthropocentric status to validate the malicious brutalization of non-human animals; however, to intentionally destroy these non-human animals only creates desensitization towards brutality inflicted on all living creatures. These animal victims value their lives as you value your own, and the legal ability does not justify the brutal action regardless of diplomatic expressions meant to foster societal support.

Furthermore, this type of action is proving environmentally damaging as well. Indeed, removing marine animals has been proven to be ecologically detrimental, harming a extremely fragile and vitally important ecosystem, the consequences of which negatively affect all other marine and land life. Because these systems exist amongst each other in symbiotic relationships, no animal, human or non-human, is immune to such ramifications.

As such, I am encouraging you to make the ethical decision to ban this type of animal cruelty; until such a time, however, I feel my only recourse is to boycott your business. Sacrificing vital business during the current financial climate may prove commercially damaging, and my hope is that this letter finds you willing to consider your actions and implement changes to ensure the safety of all animals as well as the vital ecology being continually eroded because of such damaging practices.

Thank you for your time and attention to this most important issue.
