While this is good, it's a drop in the bucket and won't stop or impede extinction all that much. China and Hong Kong are the problem, unless we stop them, they are going to extinct all the sharks.

Japan too. For cultures that have cuisine largely dependent on seafood, they sure do seem hellbent on making sure there isn't much of it left in the near future. There's a very real chance that bluefin tuna will be all but extinct in the coming decades.

Good news about Hong Kong is there’s a strong decline in appreciation for it, and if memory serves me correct the endangered species is more strictly monitored. I could easily see it being banned soon with little push back from elder generations.

Imitation artificial shark fin soup is also becoming more popular there which is helping to reduce demand for the real thing.

If it's imitating artificial shark fin soup, is that not just.... Shark fin soup?

no lol I used a sort of double negative I guess, imitation shark fin made from some kind of artificial material is what I’m talking about

I really love the fake stuff. Here they make it with chicken eggs.

The real stuff is banned here since before i was born in the early 90s, i dont know why they keep on calling it sharkfinsoup though. Just name it eggsoup allready.

Taiwan and Japan are also large consumers of shark fin soup. It’s not just China. There are other countries that consume it as well.

And Taiwan. Think it was largely banned in mainland China a while back. No idea if that applied to HK too though.
