Shark fin banned at Hong Kong functions

Government also stops serving bluefin tuna, another delicacy, at official events due to mounting conservation concerns.

    After years of pressure from conservation groups, Hong Kong's government has said that it will stop serving shark fin and bluefin tuna at official functions.

    Hong Kong is one of the world's biggest markets for shark fin, which is viewed by many Asians as a delicacy and is often served as a soup at expensive Chinese banquets.
