    I think it is best we approach the restaurants selling shark first and explain why it is important to remove shark from their menus. Give them a chance to make the change.

    I love this! Thank you for sharing it with my Roots and Shoots group. We want to do something similar. On our blog we have advertised the only shark fin free restaurant that we are aware of in Yokohama Chinatown, Japan. The students that I work with are ages 9-11 and therefore I am concerned about how we address the issue. We mainly try to educate our school community through videos, presentations, and advertisements. We would like to acknowledge the restaurant that does not serve shark fin with a special certificate to hang our their wall, but realize that they may support finning even though they do not serve shark fin. As a result, we have drafted a letter and had it translated asking them why they have made this choice. We will see what they say. If you have any ideas for our group, please share them and feel free to subscribe to our blog.
    Thanks so much for sharing!

      Thanks Angela. It’s always difficult to judge a restaurant’s true intentions. Trying to get a place to remove shark from their menu is difficult, people don’t like being told what to do! It is a long hard fight. We all know how important healthy shark populations are to the world’s oceans. Khao Lak in Thailand is a town heavily dependant on diving tourism and we are trying to promote the value of live sharks to our local community. Promoting restuarants not serving shark and trying to drive business their way is hopefully the first steps in highlighting a shark’s real value.

      We work with http://www.sharkguardian.org who I am sure would be able to give you way better advice about working with students, Liz and Brendon are doing some amazing stuff right now.

    Great initiative. Us humans are devouring so much of the planet’s resources, we are effectively destroying our own future. We are not perfect but the slaughter of millions of sharks just for food can’t be right. I read online that shark meat has higher levels of toxicity (mercury etc) than Tuna so there’s a compelling health reason not to eat it too. When I’m back in K-Lak I’ll eat at Off the Hook establishments.

    Great stuff

    We took a liveaboard this year from Khao Lak. 4 days, zero sharks. When we did the same trip 10 years ago we saw sharks on every dive. When our liveaboard returned this time round we saw a pile of dead reef sharks on waiting in a warehouse in Khao Lak pier, presumably they will have ended out on a tourist’s plate.
