The scenes in this clip were all shot on location in Mozambique with the use of hidden cameras. It is estimated that up to 100 million sharks are butchered for their fins each year, mostly to satisfy a Chinese market for shark fin soup. The fins do not add flavour, which is a type of chicken broth. Neither do they hold any nutritional value. The fins are added to provide texture. 


1/3 of all shark species are facing extinction, many within our lifetime. Sharks play a critical role in maintaining the fragile balance in our worlds oceans. It is a slap in the face to all concerned citizens that shark fin soup be allowed to be served in public restaurants.  


YOU can send out a petition to Lai Lai Garden, a restaurant in Johannesburg, South Africa asking them to remove shark fin soup from their menu. Simply click HERE
