[Apologies for cross-postings]I'm not sure if this is relevant to Coral-List, as managed by a US-government institution, but...
In eBay, if you type "shark fin" and go to "Dietary products" you find two posts selling shark fin cartillage. This comes directly from shark finning.Here is the linkhttp://health-beauty.shop.ebay.com/Dietary-Supplements-Nutrition-/19259/i.html?_nkw=shark+fin&_catref=1&_dmpt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&_fln=1&_trksid=p3286.c0.m282to the shark biologists in this list, folks in conservation groups or those with eBay accounts, would they please contact eBay and let them know why selling shark fin products is so wrong, and ask to have the posts deleted?Thanks
