.....The San Pedro Sun front page story about this weekends Shark Fishing Tournament kinda spun my head around. I love Captain Sharks, they are even friends and San Pedro, love you too,
but killing sharks......Guys its an international opinion that killing sharks for sport is a nono,
and donating the meat to the school doesn't justify squat.
This isn't just my tree huggin opinion.
Remember the old adage 'any publicity is good publicity' Well, apparently not for shark tournaments San Pedros reputation for Eco Tourism will suffer for this.

I agree with you Elbert. Even the big shark fishing tournaments in Hawaii (televised on ESPN) do not allow you to kill the shark and if you do, it counts against your team. Catch and release only.
Isn't it enough that 100 million sharks are killed annually just for their fins? (http://www.sharkwater.com/education.htm)

But of course this is just my 2 Cents.

Captain Sharks canceled this event due to the public outcry against it.

Elbert I am saying what I was told by James Ritchie yesterday. Please, if you have question about the tournament or anything else to do with Captain Sharks call them.

Why would I be trying to defuse your thread. It is a moot point, so nothing to defuse.
