Avoid these restaurants - they sell shark fin soup.
Restaurant owners: If you want your restaurant removed from this boycott list - STOP SELLING SHARK FIN SOUP! Photographic proof will be required of the updated menu before the restaurant is removed. Stop Shark Finning is a growing worldwide network of many thousands of individuals who care about sharks and the oceans.

As well as not eating at these restaurants it is also important to tell them why you will not be eating there - they need to know that by selling shark fin soup they are losing business. Unfortunately most businesses only seem to care about the bottom line, hence they will only act once they see that their refusal to act ethically is affecting profits. You can also give the manager a shark finning fact sheet (produced by the Shark Trust). There are also two well-written leaflets produced by the AWI available in both English and Chinese, click here to download one in English, the Chinese version is here (pdf).
If there is a restaurant in your area (or a store) that sells shark fin soup, try to attract attention locally: Write to your representative/MP, write to the press, join local groups on facebook and warn people about it as much as possible. Start a petition (either on-line or off-line) and take it to the restaurant.
