The growing consumption of venomous sea snakes in Southeast Asia has resulted in the massive harvesting of these marine animals in the Gulf of Thailand. Fishermen and traders face a high risk of snakebites and even death as 80 tons of sea snakes are captured annually. Herpetologist and National Geographic Emerging Explorer Zoltan Takacs documents this phenomenon while questioning the ecological and medical impact of this escalating wildlife trade.

Is Eating Venomous Sea Snakes a Bad Thing? | National Geographic
No because they're venomous. You can't eat a poisonous creature however because well they're poisonous. Their poison is adapted to survive the digestive system so it can inflict damage. Venom proteins are destroyed by the digestive system and venom is normally kept in glands near a creature's fangs or stinger, not within its flesh.
Cutting down the forests & capturing lands where animals used to live was not enough so now they are destroying marine life too. We can survive being a vegan but as greedy as humans can get ,they have become not less than a demon. But even then, there are few people out there that are kind enough to save these animals. Humans did nothing good to this planet but only destroyed mother nature to its core.
narrated by https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zoltan_Takacs Zoltán Takács is a Hungarian-born toxinologist and tropical adventurer specializing in venomous snakes and snake venoms. He is a National Geographic Society Emerging Explorer.
Takacs holds a Ph.D. in pharmacology from Columbia University. As a faculty at the University of Chicago he co-invented the designer toxin technology, which creates a large number of animal toxin variants and screens for those that bind to a potential drug target. His other main research area is why cobras and sea snakes are resistant to their own venom.
At Columbia University, Takacs served as an Earth Institute Fellow, and is a recipient of the National Geographic Society's Research and Exploration grant. He has been featured on the National Geographic Channel and on the PBS/NOVA series in several snake documentaries. Takacs has traveled to 133 countries, is an aircraft pilot, scuba diver, and wildlife photographer.
