Hong Kong

Hong Kong’s government has announced it will stop serving shark fin and bluefin tuna at official functions, in a move lauded by conservation groups. In a statement, it said it would also encourage government-funded bodies to do the same.In a press release, the government said it was taking the step because the items “have aroused international and local concern because they are either captured or harvested in ecologically unfriendly or unsustainable ways, or cause other conservation concerns”.  Hong Kong is one of the world’s biggest markets for shark fin.
