Shark Fin Soup!

On Sunday 16th January 2011 at 9.00pm, Channel 4 screened a documentary called 'Gordon Ramsay: Shark Bait' and involves Gordon Ramsey setting off on a quest to investigate the controversial dish, shark fin soup.

It's estimated that each year 100 million sharks are killed worldwide, and Gordon wants to find out if the slaughter is really necessary. Sharks are both terrifying and beautiful, but experts believe overfishing is threatening to drive a third of the world's open ocean shark species to extinction.

Incredibly, some of the most threatened species remain untouched by international fishing regulations. What Gordon discovers on his journey leads him to campaign against the brutal and destructive shark fishing industry.

The programme is available to watch until Tuesday 15th February on Channel 4's 4OD website.
