Shark Fin Soup

What is China's national dish, Shark Fin soup? The way China's new rich are persistently demanding it and others are under acute pressure to supply it at events like weddings and banquets one could easily think so. Once the food of Chinese Emperors, it's new popularity is putting the worlds shark population under so much pressure they could soon go the same way as Chinese Emperors....extinct. 
Nobody knows how many ten of millions of sharks are being caught on long lines only for their fins, often these are cut off and the living sharks torso pushed back into the sea to die slowly in that condition, the process of shark finning is a brutal business that cannot be allowed to go on.  An increasing number of countries and cities are bringing in bans and controls on the trade...that can go on!

Please pass a link to this picture to friends and Chinese concerns.
