WILD AID SPOKESMAN GALSTER SHOWS A SHARKS FIN IN BANGKOK.
Steve Galster, co-director of the international environment watchdog "Wild Aid", shows a sharks' fin at a news conference in Bangkok July 3, 2001. The fin Galster holds has had multiple samples taken from it to prove the group's report that sharks' fins sold throughout Asia and the rest of the world contain dangerously high levels of mercury. Sharks are more dangerous to humans dead than alive claim Wild Aid, who warned that Asia's love affair with soup made from sharks' fins poses serious health risks, with levels of the poisonous heavy metal as high as 42 times the quantity acceptable to humans.
