We study the pair-breaking effect of rotation on a cold Fermi gas in the BCS-BEC crossover region. In the framework of BCS theory, which is supposed to be qualitatively correct at zero temperature, we find that in a trap rotating around a symmetry axis, three regions have to be distinguished: (A) a region near the rotational axis where the superfluid stays at rest and where no pairs are broken, (B) a region where the pairs are progressively broken with increasing distance from the rotational axis, resulting in an increasing rotational current, and (C) a normal-fluid region where all pairs are broken and which rotates like a rigid body. Due to region B, density and current do not exhibit any discontinuities.
