    I kind of want to eat shark. Do those have a crazy amount of Mercury though?

    Stop by your local supermarket later. Buy some. It's not even expensive.

    I had some shark fin soup in Asia once. Maybe it was a bad cook, or a good joke on roundeyes, or maybe it tasted exactly like sharkfin soup should taste, but I did not finish and ended up at a Kenny Rogers for half a chicken.

    Or it could have been a new species and the cook was unfamiliar with proper preparation.

    They found the species pretty easily. While on the boat, the fishermen could hear a faint sing-song coming from the depths:

    I'm a shaaarkkk. I'm a shaaarrkk. Suck my diiiiickk. I'm a shaaaaarkkk.

    they just discovered mud( sand sharks) they are like one step above Oyster crackers as the most unwanted catch.....As far as shark meat... it depends who makes it... I ate a Mako at a bar... one part was great, then two inches away tasted like crap. hit or miss with shark.'

    I had shark ( Mako ?) down in Belmar, NJ, one year. Great little place that let you bring in your own beer. Had the best shrimp scampi too. Haven't had them side by side for comparison but I guess not too different from Swordfish

    Not much of a fish eater. Tried Mako, wasn't impressed.

    Maybe it was the way it was cooked. Dunno.
