Utiliser le requin dans l'alimentation est la dernière aberration à laquelle l'Homme a pensé. Il faut que les autorités de chaque ville et de chaque pays de ce monde bannisse l'utilisation de cet animal dans l'alimentation. Parlons tous haut et fort afin d'être entendus, c'est une cause importante.
