Episode Description:

In his seventy-second episode of Expedition New England, Scott Tucker teams up with Captain Charlie Donilon of Snappa Charters out of Point Judith Rhode Island for their 5th annual offshore Blue Shark Scuba diving encounter. Sharks, the most spectacular "apex predator" are being systematically stripped from our oceans to feed an unfounded Asian myth. Some estimates state that over 100 million sharks are destroyed each year "just for the fins." What's the reason? It's all in the name of an unfounded legend that declares "shark fin soup" as an aphrodisiac.

In search of more evidence, Scott leads another expedition into New York City's famous Chinatown district to witness firsthand the horrible practice of "shark fining" where Spiny Dogfish "a common New England shark species" is spotted for only $1- per pound after its fins were sliced off.

Without ever stepping foot into the cage, Scott proves once again that sharks are not the brutal killers that mainstream media has played them as he and ENE faithfuls Chris Pimley and Neil Cote swim face to face in open ocean with a solitary seven foot Blue Shark.
