Tampa Restaurant says no to cruel shark finning

(From marketwatch.com) Washington- Ivory Mandarin Bistro joins national campaign to end shark finning by taking shark fin soup off its menu. The Animal Welfare Institute (AWI) is pleased to announce that the Ivory Mandarin Bistro in Tampa, Florida has decided to stop serving shark fin soup. Restaurant owners Steve Sritrairasri and Jeffrey Wu made the decision after receiving information from AWI about the inhumane and wasteful manner in which shark fins are acquired and the overfishing of many shark species to meet the demand for the controversial shark fin soup.
