Shark fin soup


During President Trump's recent trip to Asia, the Vietnamese President Tran Dai Quang invited Mr. Trump to a state dinner in Hanoi, Vietnam. The 7-course dinner included a few controversial dishes. The American President was served two controversial, Asian delicacies: shark-fin soup and the bladder of the totoaba fish. He was also served shrimp from the disputed islands of Dokdo, or Liancourt Rocks. The islands have been a hot debate between South Korea and Japan.

Shark-finning kills roughly 75 million sharks per year and is putting a tremendous amount of pressure on shark populations worldwide.
