Ban shark Fins in Victoria

Ban shark Fins in Victoria

Dear Minister, Please ban the sale of shark fins in Victoria. They are being sold in Shark fin soup in many restaurants, markets and many more at such a small price for the life of a shark.

Why is this important?

Sharks have a great importance in the ecosystem. About 100 million sharks are killed each year for their fins and the majority of shark species have been to populations of about 1-10% of their original population. a bowl of shark fin soup can go for as little as $30. That's $30 for the life of a shark. Shark fin's in shark fin soup are basically there for show, the only flavour in the soup is from chicken or beef stock and other spices.
