Those of you talking about shark fin soup. The reason they put shark fin in soup is because it is widely considered by chefs as tasteless. Thus requires something to give it a taste. The main reason people buy it is because of the thrill of something rare; also known as the thrill of destroying many many species.
I don't mean to be a dick but you don't even have to care about extinctions to avoid eating sharks. The massive reduction in ocean predators (as in a 90% reduction in worldwide shark population in the last 50 years) is completely screwing up the ocean's ecosystems which can and does have knock on effects for all of us.
mmmm i looove sharks fin every day
OM NOM NOM
