Hong Kong - no more Shark Fins!


Hong Kong is banning serving Shark Fins at official functions.
Good to see that the advocacy of those many NGOs after China's similar decision last year has been finally successful. This ban goes even further by encompassing other unsustainable food like Bluefin Tuna and Black Moss - and further food items being deemed unsustainable may follow in the future. This is meaningful as a substantial part of the demand for those items was driven by government's infamous lavish liquor-drenched receptions that are now being targeted by the nation-wide crackdown on corruption.
