Social media users sink teeth into sharks at wet marke

Small sharks for sale at a wet maket in Yuen Long have set off a debate on social media about the endangered marine predators and the suitability of its flesh as lunch, or dinner.


The fish vendor was captured selling three tiny sharks placed on a metal tray for HK$28.

These are suspected to be pygmy sharks that have a bulbous nose and grow to about 7.4 inches in length.

Sharks are on the verge of extinction due to overfishing to serve the unquenched demand in countries including Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, and China for shark fin soup.
