NZ restaurants slammed for shark fin soup

Ten New Zealand restaurants have been named and shamed by a lobby group opposing the use of shark fins in soup.

The Australian Anti-Shark Finning Alliance was informed of the restaurants by a number of New Zealand-based supporters and has named the restaurants on its website.

Anti-Shark Finning Alliance Director Mick Dowers says the group is winning the battle to stop thousands of live sharks having their fins sliced off, just for soup.

“We’ve only been active since about April of this year, and I would say so far we’ve had about eight restaurants pledged and put into effect that they no longer serve shark fin soup, and are no longer involved in the shark fin soup industry.”

Restaurants that can prove they no longer offer the dish will be removed from the list.
