A couple of years ago, I wrote about sharks as an endangered species and the evils of the trade in shark fins. Shark fin soup, as we all know, is popular in some parts of Asia because it’s perceived as being a health food, and it’s also a status symbol because of how expensive it is.
Apparently Gordon Ramsay has taken up the cause. Forgive me for being sceptical about family-man Ramsay, but I find it hard to believe this rather unlikeable chap would do anything to promote anyone or anything other than himself. Oh well, even if he is just jumping on the bandwagon to for self-promotional purposes, at least it might bring the issue of sharks to more people’s attention.
Here’s a video of him in action.
What do you think of Gordon Ramsay and, more importantly, do you have anything to say about shark fin soup?
