Restaurants serving Shark Fin in Calgary

For almost two years Shark Fin Free Calgary has been asked to release it’s restaurant list … the time has come

We are pleased to advise that our efforts have prompted several restaurants to remove shark fin from their menus.
SFFC will be working with restaurant owners to become Certified Shark Fin Free over the coming months via the creation of our Certified Shark Fin Free program and registry that will also be available on our web site.

The restaurants below stated that they did serve shark fin soup at the time of our survey.

Shark fin soup is most commonly served at Chinese weddings.  Attending a wedding this summer?  Ask the bride & groom if they are serving shark fin and if you may opt out?  This also saves the new couple a considerable expense for that one dish.

Please consider patronizing alternative restaurants until these restaurants have been confirmed as having removed shark fin from their menu’s altogether.  listed in alphabetical order

i    Most Asian restaurants that have banquet facilities are able to order shark fin soup as special order if requested, even if not on the menu
ii   Many restaurants offered different answers to the question of whether they served shark fin, depending on whether the question was asked in English, or Cantonese/Mandarin
iii  Often English menu’s left off the Shark Fin dishes however in the Chinese Character version of the same menu Shark Fin was available

Additionally there are numerous supermarkets and stores selling Shark Fins, the two largest ones to avoid are:
