Save the Sharks

Shark fin soupImage via Wikipedia

I have read from a review that if sharks are wiped off the face of earth, there will be a massive growth of small fishes that will eat away the plankton.

Plankton is precious and important as it takes in carbon dioxide and gives the world most of it's oxygen.

Apparently sharks are responsible for 5 human deaths each year. However drugs and road accidents cause more than 100,000 human deaths.

Our oceans are depleting at an alarming state. We need to create awareness of the facts that sharks are an important community in our oceans. Lets stop the cruelty of the shark's fins industry by not consuming shark's fin. Do your part to Save the Sharks

Hi, first time commenting. You've made me felt a bit guilty consuming shark's fin this CNY. Though I don't think they use real shark's fin nowadays! : )

Many restaurants are still using real sharks fins. It's mainly die hard old traditions that keep the shark's fin industry booming.
