What Individuals Can Do
The huge demand for the shark fin as delicacy in Chinese banquets is one of the major factors fueling global shark fisheries. There is a dearth of sustainable shark fisheries and the current demand for shark fin is just too high for any sustainable shark fisheries to meet the demand. Adding to this is the lack of traceability of shark fin products along the supply chain.
Therefore, saving sharks by saying no to buying and eating shark fin and its related products at this stage is the best solution. Every decision counts.
Inform host of banquets and corporate functions in advance that you do not consume shark fin
