Shark’s Fin Soup: To Ban Or Not To Ban? http://web1.iseas.edu.sg/?p=6876 http://web1.iseas.ed...02/16feb121.pdf

Will banning shark’s fin soup from restaurant menus really save shark populations from extinction?

NO,
says one man, a vet, an animal lover, and member of a UN body on endangered species.

Xaria, does that mean Giam will NOT be on the panel? If not, will he be doing a Q&A?
