Going back to Mr. Rolleyes up top...do you know why they toss the rest of it back? Because the meat tastes like crap, and no one would pay for it. You'd think that with the poverty in China they can use to meat to feed the needy, but they don't even do that. It's worthless. You can buy a shark steak in the supermarkets in the US (not all, but many carry it)...if you come across it, pick one up just to try it. Its like swordfish (which is a pretty crappy fish IMHO) but drier and tougher...without any flavor to boot. It's just "protein."
