Myth vs Reality - Images and Google

We're asking a question here.

Why is it if the shark fin industry is so vast that we see so few images of the industry in action?

A Google image search for shark finning reveals 98,500 results.

A Google image search for Bigfoot? 2,380,000 results.

If you asked folks on the street if they believed in Bigfoot you'll probably get at least a 98% awareness of the Bigfoot myth.

And shark finning?

Food for thought.

Bill Wasserman and crew joined us at Isla Guadalupe in the fall of 2011 at Isa Guadalupe and captured the full grace and power of the white shark. This is as good as it gets.
