An 800 pound tiger shark caught off the Texas coast this week was filleted, cooked and served to nearly 100 homeless people in Corpus Christi, a charity said on Friday. "Most people liked it. The texture was interesting to them, but for the most part, people liked it," said Kae Berry, executive director of Timon's Ministries.

Strange. Maybe it was an urban legend, but I thought only a couple kinds of shark were edible. The rest being too high in ammonia or urea or something. Whatever works though :-)

How much did the homeless weigh?

They've made it annoyingly costly to donate food to charities in the cities. Tens of thousands of pounds of hog goes to waste because you're not allowed to process it yourself, you must pay a licensed facility $50 per hog just to get it to the homeless. It adds up fast considering you could shoot 50+ on a helicopter hunt.

So who's going to pose naked for PETA this month to protest this injustice?

From Wikipedia

The tiger shark is captured and killed for its fins, flesh, and liver. It is caught regularly in target and nontarget fisheries. Several populations have declined where they have been heavily fished. Continued demand for fins may result in further declines in the future. Tiger sharks are considered a near threatened species due to excessive finning and fishing by humans according to International Union for Conservation of Nature.[2]
While shark fin has very few nutrients, shark liver has a high concentration of vitamin A which is used in the production of vitamin oils. In addition, the tiger shark is captured and killed for its distinct skin, as well as by big-game fishers.[5]
In 2010, Greenpeace International added the tiger shark to its seafood red list, which is a list of fish commonly sold around the world, and which have a very high risk of being sourced from unsustainable fisheries.

We are constantly told how great the Texas economy is. The homeless folks must have been imported from Connecticut or New Hampshire. Just a publicity-fund raising stunt by Timon's Ministries IMHO

Visiting Florida this week to look at Real Estate. I went fishing yesterday and caught a black fin shark. We have a fridge full of snapper, enough f0r a week of dinners. Much fun and in stark contrast to Utah mountains and ski slopes.
