Restaurants Currently Offering Shark Fin Soup: Canada

Shark fin soup is a popular (and pricey) dish in East Asian societies, prized as a symbol of prosperity. It is traditionally served at banquets and on special occasions such as weddings. Continued demand for shark fin soup, dumplings, and other shark fin dishes served in restaurants around the world perpetuates the practice of finning, a cruel practice in which the sharks are brought on board to have their fins sliced off—often while the shark is alive, after which the shark is tossed overboard to die slowly and painfully. An estimated 73 million sharks are killed each year for their fins alone and many shark populations have faced steep declines due to years of exploitation. Their slow reproductive rates make them extremely vulnerable to extinction. The disappearance of sharks—apex predators in many ecosystems—causes dangerous imbalances in marine communities worldwide.

In 2019, Canada enacted a ban on the import and export of shark fins not still naturally attached to the rest of the shark, becoming the first G20 nation to do so. 

Below is a directory of restaurants in Canada currently offering shark fin. This includes imitation shark fin, as AWI believes that serving imitation shark fin dishes perpetuates the idea that consuming shark fin is acceptable and contributes to the serious conservation issues that sharks face.
