Amazon selling Shark Fin soup?


The massive e-Commerce retailer seems to be carrying Shark Fin Soup via a third-party vendor.

Shark Fin Soup is a product of the horrible practices used to harvest fins and is subject to a lot of controversy at the moment.

Whilst it is unlikely know that they are directly selling the product, there are a number of actions that people can do to help stop selling this product if you believe that the practice is wrong.

What you can do:

  1. Leave feedback at Amazon’s product page for Dragonfly Shark Fin Soup
  2. Send e-mail to Pacific Rim Gourmet at [email protected] and write a letter of protest to:
    Pacific Rim Gourmet
    75-5660 Kopiko Street, Suite C7-210
    Kailua-Kona, HI 96740
  3. Write to at Advantage Customer Service ([email protected]) and Investor Relations ([email protected]) complaining about them carrying the product.
  4. Spread the word through email, forum posts and blogs
  5. Boycott until they comply
