Sharks worth more for tourism than in soup - study
MetadataShow full item record
Sharks swimming free in the oceans may soon become more valuable as tourist attractions than when caught, sliced up and served in soup, a global study showed last week. It urged better protection for the fish, from Australia to the Carribean, to reduce catches of an estimated 38 million a year to meet demand for shark fin soup, mainly in China. "We are hoping will recognize that sharks are not only valuable on the plate," lead author Andres Cisneros-Montemayor of the University of British Columbia in Canada.
