Now most of us have seen the documentary by Chef Ramsay. While recording the documentary of the shark fin trade in Costa Rica and his crew and himself were attacked by the Taiwanese mafia. They reported being soaked in petroleum and held at gunpoint and threatened if they did not leave. It must have been a terrifying experience but money is what drives this illegal operation in Costa Rica. In 2012, shark finning became illegal in Costa Rica by president Chinchilla, however, the increase in illegal trading and the mafia now working on Costa Rican waters can overturn this law. The terror they have caused on the law enforcers to check ships leaving the docks of Costa Rica have prevented many law officials from doing their jobs and following their duties. Now shark fin soup has not only negatively affected the millions of sharks killed annually for their fins, but has also terrorized a nation and people who live off the oceans. Thanks to the high demand of shark fin soup by the Chinese because of the economic growth and wealth many families in this country have encountered, there has been an increased in consumption of this tasteless soup in China. Other Asian countries have seen a decrease but Chinese consumption continues to increase.
