[VIDEO] A Local Investigation of Shark Fin in Oakland’s Chinatown

Leave a comment

As a student in Berkeley, California, I often make trips to Oakland’s Chinatown for cheap pineapple buns or Vietnamese Bánh mì sandwiches. On one of my recent visits, I planned to explore the small shops and markets in search of shark fin. Given that it is a highly controversial product, only one store had shark fin stock out on display. This video project is a product of my personal findings, from interviews with a local expert on the topic, as well as a brief account of shark fin history. Enjoy and feel free to provide feedback in the comments!
