China Drops Shark Fin Soup From State Banquet Dinner Table

| Filed under: PolitikShark

This is a great step forward…but we'll see how far it goes…

Chinese officials have placed a ban on shark fin soup at all state banquets. While this sounds great for a dwindling shark population, there are a few forks in the way.

First, the new practice will take three years to fully implement….are their meals placed THAT far in advance???

Also, many outlying provinces and states ignore rules passed down from Beijing but conservationists still believe the gesture is a positive one.

Ending shark fin consumption will not only help sharks but it will also affect the economy.

Hong Kong, the hub of fin trading, sells a catty of fins for 2000 Hong Kong dollars ($260 USD) which roughly come out to 26 bucks a bowl of soup.

The governing bodies of Hong Kong have stayed stubborn in their refusal to curb shark fin trading, despite increasing public awareness and protest.

We'll stay tuned to see if the world continues to ban shark fin consumption.

First Illinois, now China. It's still a great week to be a shark though!
