GrubHub Bans Sale of Shark Fin From Restaurants

GrubHub Bans Sale of Shark Fin From Restaurants

GrubHub has banned the sale of the highly controversial shark fin, used to make shark fin soup, within its restaurant network

GrubHub and its subsidiary websites will no longer allow the sale of shark fin products, which has contributed to the critical endangerment of several shark species.

GrubHub, the country’s largest online food delivery service, has announced that it will no longer enable its restaurants to sell shark fin, a deeply controversial food product that has devastated global shark populations, many of which are critically endangered.

According to ocean conservation group Oceana, an estimated 73 million sharks are killed each year to meet the demand for shark fin soup, which is particularly popular throughout China — though surveys of Chinese citizens have indicated that the majority — 75 percent — did not know that the dish, which translates to “fish wing soup” in Mandarin, even called for shark fin. Another 19 percent believed that the shark’s fins grew back, when in fact, sharks cannot survive without their fins.

Though shark finning is illegal in the United States, fins have been bought and sold in the States by vendors who obtain them from countries where the practice is not banned, or is poorly regulated. New York State prosecuted a Brooklyn vendor for the sale of shark fin as recently as September.

“GrubHub has made the decision to no longer allow restaurants to sell shark fin dishes on our platforms,” the company said in a statement. “We deeply value our relationships with restaurants that provide Chinese cuisine on GrubHub and feel this is the right choice to protect the world's endangered species. We have been in touch with our affected restaurants to communicate the change and will continue to partner with our network of 35,000 restaurants to help them meet the evolving needs of today’s diner.”

In a press release praising GrubHub’s corporate leadership, Oceana encouraged other businesses to follow in the company’s footsteps. “The bottom line is that sharks are worth infinitely more swimming in our oceans than in a bowl of soup,” said Lora Snyder, Oceana campaign director.


House Approves Bill to Eliminate Sale of Shark Fins Nationwide

This week, the Shark Fin Sales Elimination Act was passed by the United States House of Representatives by a vote of 310 to 107. The bill&mdashled by representatives Gregorio Sablan (D-MNI) and Michael McCaul (R-TX)&mdashprohibits the import, export, possession, trade, and distribution of shark fins and products containing shark fins in the country. The act of shark finning and possession of shark fins aboard a vessel is currently prohibited in US waters under the 2010 Shark Conservation Act, but the law does not stop domestic trade. Shark fins sold in the country come from all over the world, including locations that have no ban on finning. After sharks are captured, fishermen will remove their fins and release them back into the ocean to die. By banning the trade, the US will help to alleviate shark finning, reduce the global demand for shark fins, and conserve shark populations. &ldquoThe bill is an effective, no-cost way to remove the United States from the harmful shark fin trade that contributes to the loss of up to 73 million sharks each year,&rdquo Sablan said. &ldquoA dozen states [including California, Illinois, and Maryland] and three territories already have a ban in their laws. Shark fin bans are also supported by numerous airlines and shipping companies, major corporations, and hundreds of US businesses and organizations. However, the work is not over.&rdquo The legislation will now be moved to the Senate for final vote and, if passed, will move on to the president&rsquos desk for signature into law.
