Diners at the Iberostar Hotel in Tunisia select their own cut to be cooked by the chef.

[I have no information on the circumstances of this catch, if it was accidental or targeted etc. It appears to be a thresher shark which are considered a vulnerable species* by the ICUN, but hey if it’s dead already may as well eat it? (Representatives for the hotel have since stated it was a one-off event, now never to be repeated). Hopefully it was at least a learning experience for those who tried a piece, forcing them to have a conversation they may never have considered about sharks.]

*A vulnerable species is one which has been categorized by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) as likely to become endangered unless the circumstances threatening its survival and reproduction improve. So, pretty much every commercial catch ever.
