A Hong Kong-based conservation group claims a Zhejiang company is running the world's largest shark abattoir, processing hundreds of endangered specimens a year to produce health supplements and meat for restaurants.

The factory on the southeastern coast of the province processes more than 600 endangered whale sharks a year, as well as dealing in two other threatened species of shark, according to a four-year investigation by the marine conservation group WildLifeRisk.

That's disgraceful, deplorable, and disturbing. Makes me pretty pissed off . I hope they are successful in shutting in down, and that the Chinese government actually cracks down on poachers.

This is so frustrating and very upsetting. Many shark species are endangered and help keep our Oceans healthy. I hope something is done to stop this soon.
